Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The association of occipital encephalocele, cleft palate, postaxial polydactyly, polycystic kidneys, and hepatic cysts is well known as Meckel-Gruber syndrome (MGS). Nowadays, the diagnosis of MGS is usually performed prenatally by ultrasound findings. MGS was previously described following in vitro fertilization. We report a case of MGS diagnosed at 17 weeks in a pregnancy obtained with intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
