Amniotic Band Syndrome Photos

Encephaloceles

Figure 3.39. Encephaloceles may occur at any midline point in the skull and result from failure of the neuroecto-dermal axis to develop normally. This results in bony defects of the skull with protrusion of the meninges which may contain neural tissue. They are most common in the occipital area. The prognosis is better if the rest of the skull is normal and there is no hernia-tion of neural tissue.

Amniotic Band

Figure 3.40. Encephaloceles occur at any midline point in the skull. The exception is the occurrence of an asymmetric enceph-alocele that occurs with a severe amniotic band disruption sequence. This infant with disruption shows the large asymmetric encephalocele and the involvement of the mouth, nose, eyes, and head.

Cervix Abnormal Appearance
Figure 3.41. Abnormal facial and nasal appearance of an infant with an anterior encephalocele. This infant has a severe midline nasal schistasis. The external airways were obstructed. The CT scan demonstrated a communicating encephalocele. At surgery, an ethmoid encephalocele was removed.
