Key Clinical Message

This case of alobar holoprosencephaly and cyclopia emphasizes the value of prenatal check‐ups, particularly in low‐income countries. Early ultrasound diagnosis leads to early gestational termination, preventing psychological trauma for the parents.


Alobar holoprosencephaly is a rare‐occurrence malformation with a bad prognosis linked to cyclopia, the most severe cranial feature. Prenatal examinations are essential for identifying these deformities and preventing parental mental health damage.
