Semilobar holoprosencephaly, what is this?

Could anyone tell me what holoprosencephaly is?

Could anyone tell me what holoprosencephaly is?

Undivided brain: Most of us have 2 halves in our brain, known as "hemispheres". Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is abnormal division of the embryo's brain and lack of separation of the cerebral hemispheres. HPI can be mild to severe and can cause defects in the development of the face and in brain structure and function. ...Read more

What happens if holoprosencephaly malformation complex?

What happens if holoprosencephaly malformation complex?

Brain Development: When the embryo's forebrain does not divide to form bilateral cerebral hemispheres (the left and right halves of the brain), it causes defects in the development of the face and in brain structure and function.
In less severe cases, babies are born with normal or near-normal brain development and facial deformities that may affect the eyes, nose, and upper lip. The condition can be mild or severe. ...Read more

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is alobas holoprosencephaly?

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is alobas holoprosencephaly?

Lobar Holopreosenceh: I believe you are referring to Lobar Holopreosencehaly in which the brain is not formed well leading to severe mental retardation. This is a rare condition from failure of the brain to completely divide into two separate halves. Many parts of the entire brain may be fused and not allow normal function. This may be as a result of some chromosomal disorders. A more complete descriptionfromgeneticist ...Read more

What is the average life expectancy for a child with holoprosencephaly?

What is the average life expectancy for a child with holoprosencephaly?

Undetermined: Potential depends on the severity of the defect and associated features. Many die before birth and most have a brief existence. The defect involves a great range from very major to minor, with longevity matching the degree of defect. See www. Ninds. Nih. Gov/disorders/holoprosencephaly for more information ...Read more

What other genetic problems might someone have if they have a child with holoprosencephaly?

What other genetic problems might someone have if they have a child with holoprosencephaly?

Maybe none: If I am understanding the question correctly, you're asking if someone who has a child with holoporsencephaly has genetic problems themselves. As dr ferfuson said, this problem is sometimes associated with genetic problems *in the kid.* children with these types of problems can be born from perfectly normal parents. It just happens. To be sure, parents can get tested if they want. ...Read more

Is there any hope for babies with lissencephaly, porencephaly, holoprosencephaly?

Is there any hope for babies with lissencephaly, porencephaly, holoprosencephaly?

Yes, some.: The fetal/neonatal brain has enough plasticity to allow for mild/moderate porencephalic cases to function at an acceptable level after a long and hard road to recovery. Lissencephaly and holoprosencephaly are developmental disorders of the brain anatomy and usually are manifested with recalcitrant seizures, profound neurodevelopmental delay and limitations to independent living. ...Read more

Can holoprosencephaly be detected early by any genetic testing?

Can holoprosencephaly be detected early by any genetic testing?

Yes: It can be detected during the pregnancy, but by the mean of the obstetrical ultrasonography and depends on the skills of the technician performing the procedure.
The other screening tests performed during pregnancy, may predict some of the chromosomal disorders, associated with holoprosencephaly, such as trisomy 13. ...Read more

I am 35 weeks pregnant and had two abortions and one induced abortion at 5 months due to holoprosencephaly child that was very painful want to know how much painful this time ll be to deliver a baby and whether baby will come on time or earlier?

I am 35 weeks pregnant and had two abortions and one induced abortion at 5 months due to holoprosencephaly child that was very painful want to know how much painful this time ll be to deliver a baby and whether baby will come on time or earlier?

Labor hurts: Most women find labor a lot of work and painful. They are blessed with selective forgetting since most are willing to do it again later. Your history of prior abortions will have no particular impact on the process. Labor will start when it decides to. Only about 5% deliver on their due date while 80% + deliver within 2 wks of it. ...Read more
