HOLOPROSENCEFALIA SEMILOBAR PDF

Please refer to the general article of holoprosencephaly. Clinical presentation In contrast to alobar holoprosencephaly, facial malformations are usually mild or absent 5. Pathology As with all types of holoprosencephaly, it is a rare congenital brain malformation in which there is failure of complete separation of the two hemispheres and failure of transverse cleavage into diencephalon and telencephalon. For a general discussion of epidemiology, clinical presentation and pathology, please refer to the article on holoprosencephaly. Radiographic features As will most cerebral structural congenital abnormalities, semilobar holoprosencephaly is visible on all modalities, but in general is identified on antenatal ultrasound, and best characterized by MRI.

There are four classifications of holoprosencephaly. Gross pathology specimen from a case of alobar holoprosencephaly. Lobar holoprosencephaly, in which there is considerable evidence of separate brain hemispheres, is the least severe form. Syntelencephaly, or middle interhemispheric variant of holoprosencephaly MIHV , in which the posterior frontal lobe and the parietal lobe are not properly separated, but the rostro basal forebrain properly separates; it is possible that this is not a variant of HPE at all, but it is currently classified as such.

It occurs when the corpus callosum, the band of white matter connecting the two hemispheres in the brain, fails to develop normally, typically during pregnancy. The fibers that would otherwise form the corpus callosum become longitudinally oriented within each hemisphere and form structures called Probst bundles. Holoprosencephaly consists of a spectrum of defects or malformations of the brain and face. At the most severe end of this spectrum are cases involving serious malformations of the brain, malformations so severe that they often cause miscarriage or stillbirth.

Seizures and intellectual disabilities may occur. The most severe of the facial defects or anomalies is cyclopia , an abnormality characterized by the development of a single eye , located in the area normally occupied by the root of the nose , and a missing nose or a nose in the form of a proboscis a tubular appendage located above the eye.

The condition is also referred to as cyclocephaly or synophthalmia, and is very rare. Causes[ edit ] The exact cause s of HPE are yet to be determined. Mutations in the gene encoding the Sonic Hedgehog protein , which is involved in the development of the central nervous system CNS , can cause holoprosencephaly.

Increases in expression of such genes as Pax-2 , as well as inhibition of Pax-6 , from the notochord have been implicated in normal differentiation of cephalic midline structures. Inappropriate expression of any of these genes may result in mild to severe forms of holoprosencephaly. There is evidence that in some families, HPE is inherited autosomal dominant as well as autosomal or X-linked recessive inheritance.
