Case of the week # 115

October 16-30, 2003

Juan Carlos Quintero MD, Eduardo Romero, MD

Unidad de Diagnòstico Prenatal Centro Médico Imbanaco, Cali, Colombia


26 years old primigravida who comes to ultrasound at 13 weeks for nuchal translucency.

The working diagnosis as expected was acrania, although the amount of brain appeared unusually large. The patient elected to interrupt the pregnancy. The reason for the large head was that this fetus is a dicephalic duplicata incompleta with bilateral acrania.
