  • Look Inside

Holoprosencephaly, as described by DeMyer, is a cerebral malformation in which the embryonic pro-sencephalon fails to divide into cerebral hemispheres. According to the degree of division in the prosencepha-Ion, he classified holoprosencephaly into three types ; alobar, semilobar and lobar type. We have experi-enced a case of holoprosencephaly with parietal encephalocele. The patient was admitted to our hos-pital 4 hours after birth because of parietal encepha-locele. A radical operation was carried out and en-cephalocele was diagnosed histologically.
