Orbital roof fractures associated with cranial and maxillofacial trauma are rarely encountered. Traumatic intraorbital encephaloceles due to orbital roof fractures developing in the early posttraumatic period are even rarer. A variety of materials, such as alloplastic implants or autogenous materials, have been used for the reconstruction of orbital roof, but data regarding the long-term results of these materials are very limited. We report a case of intraorbital encephalocele developing in the early posttraumatic period (2 days) in a child patient and the long-term results of titanium mesh used for the reconstruction of the orbital roof. The case is presented with a pertinent review of literature.
