Description

Anencephaly is a lethal congenital anomaly where most of the brain is absent and what remains is not covered by the calvarium or skull. Frequently, the cerebral hemispheres and midbrain are absent. The defect involves the abnormal closure of the anterior portion of the neural groove.

Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Discuss the incidence of anencephaly and the theories behind its development.

2. Discuss the ultrasound appearance of anencephaly and other anomalies associated with this congenital defect.

3. Describe the psychological adaptation that couples experience once this diagnosis is made.
