We report on an 18-week fetus with cyclopia, alobar holoprosencephaly, complex congenital heart defect, anal atresia, oligosyndactyly, cystic hygroma, and skeletal abnormalities with trisomy 4. Structural anomalies were detected on routine ultrasound of the pregnancy of a 17-year-old G3 P1 TAB1 woman with sickle cell trait. Trisomy 4 conceptuses usually miscarry in the first trimester. We are aware of no other reports of a fetus with trisomy 4 and cyclopia. Causal association of chromosome abnormalities and holoprosencephaly sequence may be more apparent in embryos and early fetuses than term fetuses because of poor viability of affected conceptuses.
