Ring chromosome 6 (RC6) is a rare constitutional abnormality, with variable material loss, leading to a variable clinical phenotype: minimal physical anomalies and mild psychomotor retardation to severe physical and mental defects. Among the 22 published cases, only five have been prenatally detected. We describe here a RC6 prenatally diagnosed. Ultrasound follow-up showed growth retardation and cerebellar hypoplasia. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) confirmed this, but showed a partial corpus callosum agenesis, leading to amniocentesis and revealing the chromosomal abnormality. Imaging features were correlated with autopsy findings.
