In the alobar and semilobar forms of holoprosencephaly, prenatal diagnosis using ultrasound is well established 1. Half of the cases have genetic origin. [3–5] Demyer and Zeman suggested this resulted from a defect in the ventral induction and from the patterning of the rostral neural tube by the p… Copyrights © 1990-2021 TheFetus.net. Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is a birth defect in which the telencephalic vesicles emerging from the forebrain during the 5th and 6th week of development remains fused on the midline. We report here a singleton pregnancy with Alobar Holoprosencephaly in a 32-year-old multiparous hypothyroid woman during early pregnancy. BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Holoprosencephaly is a rare developmental brain abnormality with a range of severity. HPE is a rare structural abnormality of the brain and is associated with neurologic impairment and facial dysmorphism. Holoprosencephaly is a severe brain malformation caused by abnormal separation of the forebrain, a process that is normally completed by the 5th week of gestation . The frontal lobes were fused in B the posterior frontal region in the third patient with semi lobar holoprosencephaly and in the patient with the lobar variety. ... Centre of fetal and gynecologic diagnostics, Slovak Republic. In some cases, it can potentially identify affected fetuses in the first trimester. Coronal and axial scans of the fetal head showing the holoprosencephaly and the facial irregularity from the cleft Holoprosencephaly is a malformation of the prosencephalon with failure of normal midline cleavage, frequently associated with incomplete midface development. [ 17, 18, 1] A study of 35 fetuses with holoprosencephaly compared the … Banu Dane, Cem Dane, Figen Aksoy, Murat Yayla, Semilobar holoprosencephaly with associated cyclopia and radial aplasia: first trimester diagnosis by means of integrating 2D–3D ultrasound, Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics, 10.1007/s00404-009-0975 … Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol 2008;32(6):744–750. Ultrasound is a good modality for prenatal diagnosis of holoprosencephaly that is frequently associated with midline face deformity such as cleft lip and palate. Intracranial and extracranial findings were reviewed to determine the accuracy and spectrum of the sonographic features. can appear very similar. fusion of the anterior aspects of the hemispheres. falx and interhemispheric fissure incomplete. Prenatal imaging of congenital malformations of the brain. Management: Fetal karyotype is mandatory when holoprosencephaly is discovered by ultrasound; termination of pregnancy should be offered to parents of previable fetuses.

Holoprosencephaly denotes an incomplete or absent division of … The early embryonic occurrence may be even higher but may not be detected due to most fetuses aborting in early gestation. A transabdominal ultrasonographic diagnosis of holoprosencephaly before 16 weeks' gestation is difficult. Case report Invasive testing for karyotyping and array. HPE has been divided into three subcategories based on the structural malformation: alobar, semilobar, and lobar HPE. Researchers in the U.K. found that ultrasound images of the nose of the developing fetus during the second trimester can accurately predict the risk of the chromosomal birth defect. Fetal MRI may be useful for confirmation of diagnosis in cases of suspected lobar holoprosencephaly. Although rare in absolute terms, holoprosencephaly is the most common brain abnormality and is seen in 1 per 10,000-16,000 live births 3,9. The image 2 shows biometry of cloverleaf-shaped head. Abstract Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is a heterogeneous central nervous system (CNS) anomaly that results from a primary defect in induction and patterning of the rostral neural tube (basal forebrain), leading to varying degrees of incomplete separation of the cerebral hemispheres and facial anomalies. This is a case of 36-year-old patient with history of ectopic pregnancy and infertility. There are three types: alobar, semilobar and lobar. Abnormal fetal morphology suggested Patau syndrome. The holoprosencephalies (HPEs) are a group of disorders that are characterized by a failure of differentiation and midline cleavage of the prosencephalon, which usually occurs between days 18 and 28 of gestation. 2006-11-09-12 Holoprosencephaly, semilobar © Dudarewicz www.thefetus.net/. Introduction. Prognosis: An MRI of the fetus, at 34 weeks pregnancy, demonstrated semilobar holoprosencephaly. Our case was a 23‐year‐old female who was referred to our Fetal Medicine Unit for the first trimester combined screening. Semin Ultrasound CT MR 2011;32(3):167–188. Holoprosencephaly may be associated to other midline defects and may be part of an aneuploidy such a trisomy 13 (Patau's syndrome). Coordination of services with your obstetrician and family doctor ensure that your child receives seamless integrated attention when it matters most. Holoprosencephaly is typically detected during a routine ultrasound exam. Detailed ultrasound examination, including neurosonography. An antenatal ultrasound study, at 32 weeks pregnancy, raised the suspicion of a brain malformation, but it was suboptimal due to maternal habitus. Dedicated to the mission of bringing free or low-cost educational materials and information to the global ultrasound community. The image 3 shows semilobar type of holoprosencephaly with fusion of anterior brain structures and absent midline structures. The latter may be a … Follow up: If pregnancy continues, follow-up should be standard. Delivery: Standard obstetric care and delivery. Diagnosis is then confirmed through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or a computed tomography (CT) scan. The ultrasound scan performed at 12 weeks of pregnancy revealed semilobar holoprosencephaly, cleft lip and palate, abnormal heart, and sacral mass. Due to multiple abnormalities, the patient opted for termination. Head of the fetus with semilobar holoprosencephaly (left) and cleft palate (right). We describe our experience in diagnosing holoprosencephaly in the fetus with in utero MR imaging. MESH Holoprosencephaly BDE 0473 MIM autosomal dominant 142945, autosomal recessive 236100 and X-linked recessive 306990 ICD9 742.2 CDC 742.260 . The ultrasound scan performed at 12 weeks of pregnancy revealed semilobar holoprosencephaly, cleft lip and palate, abnormal heart, and sacral mass. Kline-Fath BM, Calvo-Garcia MA. The Fetal Medicine Program is designed to allow for comprehensive neonatal care, from delivery to transport to surgical intervention or other treatment plans. However, the diagnosis of lobar holoprosencephaly is difficult, as a distinct interhemispheric fissure is present. None of the four patients had a detectable corpus callosum or fornix. In mild cases, the condition may not be diagnosed until after birth. The severe forms, semilobar and alobar holoprosencephaly, are easily diagnosed because of the presence of a monoventricle and obvious fusion of the cerebral hemispheres (Fig. Fourteen cases of holoprosencephaly (HP), including 10 cases of alobar HP and four cases of semilobar HP, were identified by prenatal sonography. HPE has an overall incidence of 1/250 in early fetal loss, but of 1/15 000 (Bullen et al., 2001) at birth. The frontal horns were unformed in the three Introduction Banu Dane, Cem Dane, Figen Aksoy, Murat Yayla, Semilobar holoprosencephaly with associated cyclopia and radial aplasia: first trimester diagnosis by means of integrating 2D–3D ultrasound, Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics, 10.1007/s00404-009-0975 … Dec. 17, 2002 -- A new method for identifying Down syndrome in fetuses may reduce or even eliminate the need for amniocentesis in many pregnant women. semilobar holoprosencephaly. Lack of prosencephalus division at a later stage either leads to semilobar holoprosencephaly or lobar prolosencephaly. All Rights Reserved. 8-11). Karyotyping showed trisomy 13. Holoprosencephaly (HPE) has been known since antiquity through the figure of the cyclopean shepherd Polyphemos in Homer's Odyssey (circa 800 bc).Until the 17th century, a cyclopic newborn, whether it was a human or an animal, was associated with mystic and fabulous narrations.1, 2 In the 18th century, HPE and other anomalies were recognized as congenital conditions, … She became pregnant after intrauterine insemination. Three-dimensional inversion rendering in the first- and early second-trimester fetal brain: its use in holoprosencephaly. Radiographic features As will most cerebral structural congenital abnormalities, semilobar holoprosencephaly is visible on all modalities, but in general is identified on antenatal ultrasound, and best characterized by MRI. Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is a complex brain malformation resulting from the incomplete midline cleavage of the prosencephalon and occurring between the 18th and the 28th day of gestation,[1,2] indicating that HPE is a disorder of gastrulation. Classic holoprosencephaly spectrum includes alobar, semilobar, and lobar forms, with decreasing severity from alobar to … partial fusion of the thalami. In addition to facial anomalies, anomalies of the spine and extremities are frequently associated with it and one must look for them, such as meningomyelocoele and limb abnormalities. The image 3 shows semilobar type of holoprosencephaly with fusion … Crossref, Medline, Google Scholar; 56. Karyotyping showed trisomy 13. The fetal gland becomes operational near mid-gestation . As with all types of holoprosencephaly, it is a rare congenital brain malformation in which there is failure of complete separation of the two hemispheres (which usually occurs around the 4th to 6th gestational weeks) and failure of transverse cleavage into the diencephalon and telencephalon. All kinds of holoprosencephaly can be diagnosed by ultrasound. All Rights Reserved. Nevertheless, when the sonographic diagnosis is uncertain in cases shuch as maternal obesity, fetal size and position, the MR imaging can be helpful. Holoprosencephaly is a malformation sequence derived from failure of cleavage of the fetal prosencephalon sagittally into cerebral hemispheres and transversally into the diencephalon and. Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is the commonest congenital brain malformation and indicates absent or incomplete midline cleavage of the brain. Banu Dane, Cem Dane, Figen Aksoy, Murat Yayla, Semilobar holoprosencephaly with associated cyclopia and radial aplasia: first trimester diagnosis by means of integrating 2D–3D ultrasound, Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics, 10.1007/s00404-009-0975-6, 280, 4, (647-651), (2009). Abnormal fetal heart (left) and sacral region (right) of the fetus with sacral mass. Clinical geneticist indicated amniocentesis with PCR testing immediately, but a normal karyotype was confirmed.
