Spina bifida is a defect of the vertebral arches. Most frequently the cavity of the neural tube is open. In a minority of cases the defect is closed by the overlying skin. Open spina bifida results in a U-shaped defect of the vertebrae in the axial plane, and is associated with typical cranial signs and clubfoot.
Under this term are included a group of conditions that share in common one sonographic findings: the impression that the fourth ventricle communicates with the cisterna magna. These conditions include: Dandy-Walker malformation, Blake’s pouch cyst, vermian hypoplasia/agenesis. They have a similar sonographic appearance, particularly in early gestation, and differentiation requires a multiplanar approach.
Holoprosencephaly derives from failure of separation of the cerebral hemispheres. In the most severe forms there is one undivided cerebral mass that contains a crescent shaped rudimentary ventricular cavity. In these cases, severe cranio-facial anomalies (cyclopia, hypotelorism, median cleft face) are associated.
