2 The Central Nervous System and the Eye Anencephaly. Definition: Anencephaly, and in particular the exencephaly-anencephaly sequence, belongs to the group of cranial neural tube defects and is a condition in which the cranial vault, overlying skin, the meninges and brain are absent. Incidence: Geographical differences are marked; in Germany and the United States, the figure is one in 1000. Exencephaly is a rare fetal anomaly that is incompatible with extrauterine life. In exencephaly, the bones of the cranial vault are absent (acrania), but the facial structures and the base of the skull are preserved (Casellas et al., 1993).The terms exencephaly and acrania are used interchangeably in this chapter Journal of Radiology and Clinical Imaging 3 (2020): 003-012. View / Download Pdf Share at Facebook Abstract. A congenital anomaly, fetal acrania (exencephaly) is, in which the fetal brain is not surrounded completely or partially by the skull bones. It is suggested that there is lacking of mesenchymal migration in the fourth week of. When autocomplete results are available use up and down arrows to review and enter to select.

Exencephaly is a rare malformation of the cranium that is characterized by the absence of the skull, the cranial cavity, and the scalp with a large mass of protruding brain tissue covered by a membrane and with prominent bulging eyeballs .It is considered to be an embryological precursor of anencephaly Exencephaly is a rare fetal anomaly in which the skull vault is absent (acrania), however, residual brain tissue is present which floats freely in amniotic fluid. It is a precursor to anencephaly and not compatible with extra-uterine life . Encephalocele is a midline bony defect in the skull with herniation of cerebral tissue and meninges Index terms: Exencephaly; Brain, herniation; Fetus, abnormali ties and anomalies The amnion rupture sequence is a heteroge neous group of congenital deformities in which rupture of the amnion occurs early in gestation. Fragments of the amnion may adhere to, or encircle and constrict, embryonic parts. This ma Exencephaly is a rare congenital anomaly, thought to be a precursor of anencephaly, thought to be a precursor of anencephaly. Like anencephaly, this abnormality is characterized by absence of the cranial vault above the orbits. However, unlike anencephaly, discrete, sometimes disorganized, brain tissue can be identified above the cranial defect
ACRANIA/EXENCEPHALY-ANENCEPHALY. Description: Acrania is a defect that occurs due to complete or partial absence in the development of the cranial vault above the orbits, with absence of parietal, squamousal, occipital, temporal, and frontal bones above the supraciliary ridge. 9 Exencephaly is acrania with protrusion of substantial brain into. We describe the MRI appearances of an anencephalic newborn who survived for 13 h; particularities of this case are male gender and the absence of other associated malformations. Moreover, we discuss the pathogenetic theories of anencephaly, correlating MRI findings with embryological data. An exencephaly-anencephaly sequence due to amnion rupture is hypothesized 3) Timor-Tritsch IE, Greenbaum E, Monteagudo A, Baxi L: Exencephaly-anencephaly sequence: proof by ultrasound imaging and amniotic fluid cytology.

Exencephaly as a precursor of anencephaly is well delineated in animal studies. In humans, a similar though unproven embryologic sequence is postulated.

Exencephaly was diagnosed at 17 weeks in a 27-year-old primigravida with abnormalities of the hands and a family history suggestive of autosomal dominant brachydactyly and clinodactyly.

Exencephaly is a rare neural tube defect in which a large portion of the brain is located outside of the skull. Early fetal manifestations of exencephaly on sonography sometimes progress to those of anencephaly later in gestation, a result of necrosis of neural tissue that is exposed to amniotic fluid. This anomaly usually results in fetal death Exencephaly. Summary: A 22-year-old G2P1 precipitously delivered a 37-week male infant at home. The infant was transferred to our tertiary care facility. The prenatal record was not available, but the patient's mother gave a history of an abnormal prenatal ultrasound showing exencephaly condarily, anencephaly may develop as a result of prolonged exposure of the developing encephalon to amniotic fluid and trauma in utero. As in anencephaly, facial structures and the bony base of the calvarium are often preserved in exencephaly. Sonographically, the outstanding feature of exencephaly is the cerebral mass, with convolutions or pseudo sulcal patterns present. These findings.
