Encephalocele is the protrusion of the cranial contents beyond the normal confines of the skull through a defect in the calvarium. The occurrence of more than one encephalocele in a patient is very rare, and very few cases of double encephalocele have been reported. We report here a case of double encephalocele over the occipital area in a newborn. At the time of surgery, we found that both were arising from a single bone defect with separate sac. Both were repaired, and the patient was discharged uneventfully.
