MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included 15 fetuses diagnosed with holoprosencephaly out of 2095 cases analysed post-mortem in the Fetopathology Clinic at the Centre for Maternity and Neonatology in the town of Tunisia over a period of 3 years (Oct. 2006 - Oct. 2009). The fetuses were analysed macro- and microscopically.
RESULTS: All forms of holoprosencephaly include elements of facial dysmorphism with the facial phenotypes of cyclopia, cebocephaly and ethmocephaly. It can be associated with specific internal organs anomalies, the hydrocephaly being the most common anomaly of the central nervous system. Our study suggested that holoprosencephaly can be correlated with craniofacial anomalies affecting the midfacial and medium craniovisceral structures.
CONCLUSION: The anatomical variations of HPE and the phenotypic facial correlations require a systematic and targeted study of central nervous system.
