Anencephaly: A Case Report and Literature Review

Anencephaly is a lethal fetal neurological malformation. This malformation
accounts for 40% of neural tube malformations. The diagnosis is based on the
ultrasound of the 1st trimester between the 11th and the 14th weeks of amenorrhea
by the discovery of an exencephaly which results in the visualization of the
ossification of the cranial box and therefore of the impossibility to measure the
biparietal diameter. The objective of our work is to highlight the importance of
an early ultrasonic diagnosis of anencephaly, which could help in a thorough
evaluation and active management. Also, the main role of folic acid in the
prevention in neural tube defects.
