It is characterized by either the absence of cerebral hemispheres or represented by a membranous sac containing cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) with dispersed remenants of frontal, temporal or occipital center over the membrane. The midbrain and brain stem are relatively intact. The incidence is around 1 in 10,000 births. Various etiologies have been proposed. Commonest ones are bilateral occlusion of the internal carotid arteries during early fetal development. Infants with this condition can be normal at birth but after the few weeks become irritable with increase in muscle tone and in some cases seizures can develop.</p> Dr.Shefali Patel sandeep Dr. Kiran B Copyright (c) 2022 Author (s).
