Holoprosencephaly represents a spectrum of brain and facial malformations. No midline falx, fused thalami, single ventricle with a single choroid plexus. In conclusion, first trimester diagnosis of conditions such as acrania, alobar holoprosencephaly and encephalocele is possible, and these anomalies should actively be excluded at every early scan. There are three types: alobar, semilobar and lobar. This is a retrospective cohort study of holoprosencephaly cases referred to the Fetal Medicine Unit at University College London Hospital from June 1991 to June 2006 for a detailed ultrasound scan.

Sepulveda W, Dezerega V, Be C (2004) First trimester sonographic diagnosis of holoprosencephaly: value of the “butterfly” sign. We present the ultrasound detection of alobar holoprosencephaly (HPE) with cyclopia in an embryo of 9 weeks 2 days last menstrual period (LMP)-based gestational age; the crown-rump length (CRL) was 22 mm. Between 1990 and 2005, a collective of 51 fetuses with tentative ultrasound diagnosis of HPE was recruited at two tertiary referral centers for prenatal ultrasound diagnostics via the Pia Fetal Database (GE Medical Systems, Webling, Germany). 3D examination of the face is consistent with unfused maxillary buds (facial cleft). The systematic detailed examination of the fetal brain in the first trimester includes the acquisition of three axial planes, similar to the approach performed in the second trimester ultrasound examination (see Figs. A: No cerebral flax, hence no cleavage of lateral ventricles and choroid plexus. Ultrasound examinations were performed by the authors from June 1989 to November 1998, using a convex transabdominal transducer of 3.5 MHz and transvaginal transducer of 5 MHz (Aloka Model 680EX, Tokyo, Japan). B, Absent nasal bone ( arrow ) in a fetus with trisomy 21. Holoprosencephaly is a severe brain anomaly characterized by different degrees of fusion of the lateral ventricles resulting from failure of the prosencephalon to cleave during early embryogenesis. Transvaginal 2D sonographic examination is effective in detection of the cases with HPE at first trimester.

What is the most likely diagnosis ? The purposes of this communication are to describe the intracranial findings consistent with alobar holoprosencephaly and to emphasize the role of high frequency transvaginal ultrasonography in establishing early diagnosis at 10 weeks of gestation. Check for errors and try again. Trisomy 13. The latter may be a challenging differential diagnosis to septal agenesis. Screening for spina bifida is feasible in specialist centres with detection rates of 50% to 100% and very low-false positive rates (FPRs). A: No cerebral flax, hence no cleavage of lateral ventricles and choroid plexus. ADVERTISEMENT: Radiopaedia is free thanks to our supporters and advertisers. J C et al (2009) A novel SIX3 mutation segregates with holoprosencephaly in a large family.

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. The objective of this study is to demonstrate the potential role of the first trimester ultrasound in diagnosis of holoprosencephaly. Holoprosencephaly, alobar form. Typical findings of holoprosencephaly in its alobar form as it's supposed to be imaged in the first trimester. 9 Therefore, prenatal karyotyping is highly recommended to assist in the prenatal counselling and determine the recurrence risk. Could this finding be part of a syndromic condition ? ADVERTISEMENT: Radiopaedia is free thanks to our supporters and advertisers. Routine 1st trimester echography. For some other conditions, such as vermian anomalies and agenesisofthecorpus callosum,markers havebeen identified,butthe diagnosiscanonly beconfirmed in the second trimester of gestation. No midline falx, fused thalami, single ventricle with a single choroid plexus. Objective: To study the value of choroid plexus dysmorphology as a screening tool for the first-trimester sonographic diagnosis of holoprosencephaly in a high-risk population. The prevalence of alobar holoprosencephaly, exomphalos, megacystis and NT ≥ 3.5 mm was 1 in 2945, 1 in 419, 1 in 1345 and 1 in 119, respectively. Lobar holoprosencephaly is detectable at >18 weeks’ gestation, but the other three types can be detected at the 11-13 weeks scan. Routine 1st trimester echography. Holoprosencephaly may be associated to other midline defects and may be part of an aneuploidy such a trisomy 13 (Patau's syndrome). First trimester sonographic diagnosis of holoprosencephaly. Check for errors and try again. OBJECTIVES: To examine the prevalence of alobar holoprosencephaly, exomphalos, megacystis and nuchal translucency thickness (NT) ≥ 3.5 mm, the incidence and types of chromosomal abnormalities associated with these conditions and their overall impact on the rate of invasive testing and performance of screening at 11-14 weeks. 2. Material and methods . Alobar holoprosencephaly information for health professionals HP_AH_V1 June 2009 1 Screening Programmes Fetal Anomaly The aim of this information sheet is to support staff involved in counselling pregnant women and their partners when a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of alobar holoprosencephaly (HPE) has been made, following an ultrasound scan. Associated abnormalities: Chromosomal defects, mainly trisomies 13 or 18, are found in >50% of cases at 12 weeks’ gestation. Alobar holoprosencephaly (HPE… Holoprosencephaly may be associated to other midline defects and may be part of an aneuploidy such a trisomy 13 (Patau's syndrome).

ADVERTISEMENT: Supporters see fewer/no ads. The prognosis of alobar holoprosencephaly is uniformly lethal, with a substantial number of cases detected in the first trimester being associated with chromosomal abnormalities, mainly trisomy 13. Although alobar holoprosencephaly has been described during the first trimester 4, detailed transvaginal sonographic description of the condition has not been shown. Fetal morphological study through 3D ultrasound may facilitate the diagnosis of associated anomalies. Alobar holoprosencephaly: prenatal ultrasound 1st trimester. 1 This condition is invariably associated with a wide range of midfacial defects ranging from a single incisor to cyclopia. Holoprosencephaly may be associated to other midline defects and may be part of an aneuploidy such a trisomy 13 (Patau's syndrome). Typical findings of holoprosencephaly in its alobar form as it's supposed to be imaged in the first trimester. Normal skull shape, normal posterior fossa and cerebellum for 15 weeks of pregnancy. Half of the cases have genetic origin. In our case, prenatal karyotyping revealed triploidy. The nuchal translucency is also enlarged in this fetus. The diagnosis was based on two sonographic criteria: first, the intracranial finding of a single ventricle with a cerebral mantle and no visible midline structures but fusion of the thalami and corpus striatum; and, second, facial abnormalities, including hypotelorism. All kinds of holoprosencephaly can be diagnosed by ultrasound. Modern ultrasound imaging devices have increasingly allowed sophisticated prenatal diagnoses of fetal disorders.
