PMID: 35864609.


The culprit of trigeminal neuralgia (TGN) may occur at any point between the nerve's root entry zone (REZ) and Meckel's cave. Meckel's cave meningoencephaloceles are rare middle cranial fossa defects that usually remain asymptomatic but may contain prolapsed trigeminal nerve rootlets and result in TGN. Their management and surgical outcomes remain poorly understood.
