In brief: MANY

Neural tube defects: include anencephaly (no cortex) , spina bifida (open spine) and cephalocele.
Hydrocephalus is found in about 2 per 1, 000 births. Ventriculomegaly (enlarged ventricles) also holoprosencephaly (incomplete cleavage of the forebrain) agenesis of the corpus callosum, the dandy-walker complex (cyst in 4th ventricle) microcephalus is small head/brain. Various cyst (e.g.Arachnoid).
