PMID:  22715167     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe a first trimester female foetus with aplasia of the occipital bone allowing a meningocele without skin coverage to be formed. The pregnancy was terminated, and on later autopsy the brain appeared to be intact. The foetus carried an apparently balanced translocation 46,XX,t(3;9)(p21.3;q22.3) inherited from a normal father and grandfather.
