Abstract

Holoprosencephaly is a rare developmental defect due to incomplete cleavages of the prosencephalon during the third week of fetal development. It was associated with chromosomal anomalies, genetic syndrome, teratogen, or genetic disorder of non-syndromic HPE. Early antenatal detection of holoprosencephaly was done by high resolution ultrasonography. According to its severity and prognosis, it was capable of proper treatment of holoprosencephaly. We report one case of holoprosencephaly with a brief review of the literature
