Growing frac­tures are a ­rare ­entity, usu­al­ly occur­ring in paed­i­at­ric age. Localisation at the orbi­tal ­region is ­even rar­er. We ­report the ­case of a grow­ing frac­ture of the orbi­tal ­roof ­with ­post-trau­mat­ic ence­phal­o­cele in an ­adult ­patient, the 1st sim­i­lar ­case in adult­hood at our knowl­edge. Clinical and neu­ro­im­ag­ing ­aspects are ­described, under­lin­ing the ­role of MRI in dis­play­ing intra­or­bi­tal ence­phal­o­cele. Surgical treat­ment ­with rel­e­vant tech­ni­cal ­notes is dis­cussed as ­well.
