Recent advancements in fetal imaging and antenatal care have enabled identification of numerous anomalies including agenesis of corpus callosum and posterior fossa abnormalities. One of the important determinants of long-term prognosis in these conditions is the presence of central nervous system (CNS) and extra-CNS anomalies. The difficulty in confirming the isolated nature of these conditions antenatally and the lack of clear information regarding long-term prognoses makes it difficult for the clinician to provide accurate information to the parents antenatally. Caring for these families would require input from a multidisciplinary team involving obstetricians, geneticists, neurologists, radiologists and neonatologists.
