Because the olfactory bulbs and tracts are nearly always absent in this category of disorders, the term arrhinencephaly has been used. 335 The four major neuropathological varieties of holoprosencephaly are distinguished principally according to the severity of the abnormality of cleavage of cerebral hemispheres and deep nuclear structures. The major neuropathological features of the most severe disturbance, appropriately characterized as alobar holoprosencephaly, include a single-sphered cerebral structure with a common ventricle, fusion of basal ganglia and thalamus, a membranous roof over the third ventricle that is often distended into a large cyst posteriorly, absence of the corpus callosum, as well as absence of the olfactory bulbs and tracts, and hypoplasia of the optic nerves or the presence of only a single optic nerve (Figs.
These anomalies have major implications with respect to outcome and management (see later). Timing In view of the heterogeneity of causes of congenital hydrocephalus, definition of a single time of onset of the disorder is not possible.
Management of the newborn with a skin lesion suggestive of an occult dysraphic state usually includes radiography of the spine. However, before the age of 1 year, ossification of the posterior spinal elements is insufficient to be certain that no abnormality is present. Moreover, even in older infants and children, 10% to 15% of patients with occult dysraphic states have normal spine radiographs. 328,329 If both radiography and ultrasonography findings of the spine are normal, no neurological signs exist, and the only clinical finding is a simple dimple or flat hemangioma, many clinicians consider further radiological study to be unnecessary in the neonatal period and clinical follow-up appropriate.
