A loss-of-function variant has been described in three members of one family with a range of classic HPE-spectrum features [ Arauz et al ]. Orphanet J Rare Dis. A Hypomorphic allele in the FGF8 gene contributes to holoprosencephaly and is allelic to gonadotropin-releasing hormone deficiency in humans. Genetic holoprosencegalia is the process of providing individuals and families with holoprosendefalia on the nature, inheritance, and implications of genetic disorders to help them make informed medical and personal decisions.

Holoprosencephaly consists of a spectrum of defects or malformations of the semilonar and face. This finding was demonstrated by sonography in a week-old fetus with lobar HPE; the finding was confirmed after birth by both ultrasound examination and MRI. University of Washington, Seattle; The condition can be mild or severe.

Some of the more common include the following, categorized by mode of inheritance [ Dubourg et al ]: Holoprosencephaly HPE is a structural anomaly of the brain in which there is failed or incomplete separation of the forebrain early in gestation.

Genotypic and phenotypic analysis of individuals with mutations in Sonic Hedgehog. A caesarean section was performed at 38 weeks. Inappropriate expression of any of these genes may result in mild to severe forms of holoprosencephaly. Edison RJ, Muenke M. Most affected children benefit from a multidisciplinary team approach with clinicians very familiar with HPE.

Current Issue Archive Boards.

Holoprosencephaly in human embryos: Fetal MRI has been used in several centers to evaluate CNS holoprosencefslia when ultrasound studies have suggested the presence of an anomaly [ Guo et alBlaicher et alSharma et alBlaicher et alWald et al ]. Pathogenic variants in GLI2 can cause panhypopituitarism and polydactyly, and, more rarely, may also result in HPE [ Roessler et alRahimov et al ; Author, unpublished data].

Hoooprosencefalia difficulties and failure to thrive may be managed with gastrostomy tube placement and Nissen fundoplication if holoporsencefalia reflux and vomiting are issues. Subscriber If you already have your login data, please click here.

All children with midline facial anomalies should undergo brain MRI; attention should also be paid to the pituitary region, which often requires high-resolution thin sections. Other search option s Alphabetical list. However, it is important to note that many examples exist in which this correlation cannot be made.


There may not be clinical trials for this disorder. Only comments seeking to improve the quality and accuracy of information on the Orphanet website are accepted. More common problems include slowness in eating, frequent pauses, and frank vomiting with risk of aspiration. The study of choice is cranial MRI examination, preferably obtained with adequate sedation at a pediatric center experienced in evaluating children for structural brain anomalies.
