  • Holoprosencephaly: recent advances and new insights. Current opinion in neurology Kinsman, S. L., Plawner, L. L., Hahn, J. S. 2000; 13 (2): 127-132


    Holoprosencephaly is a relatively common brain malformation occurring in 5-12/100,000 live births. The astonishing growth in molecular genetic medicine has provided the field of developmental nervous system malformations with new perspectives and tools for unraveling its mysteries and offering better information for clinicians and families. This is particularly evident in the group of complex midline malformations known as holoprosencephaly. Although new molecular findings have shed light on some of the causes and manifestations of this malformation, there remains a need to build on the existing clinical knowledge so that we may develop more effective treatments and improve the quality of life of these patients.
