Abstract

Alobar holoprosencephaly is one of the most severe congenital malformations of the central nervous system. Most affected infants are stillborn or have a very short life-span. The survivors can present with neonatal seizures and/or infantile spasms. We report on an unusually long- lived patient with alobar holoprosencephaly and minor facial dysmorphism, who developed generalized epilepsy during childhood.
