ABSTRACT

Holoprosencephaly is a disorder of cleavage failure or incomplete differentiation of the forebrain structures. Chromosomal anomalies and environmental teratogenic factors play a role in its development. We reported 22 cases of holoprosencephaly diagnosed between the years 2011-2020 in our clinic.
