PACHAJOA, Harry; VEJARANO, Luis Eduardo y ISAZA, Carolina. Use of 3D Multislide CT in the Study of a Fetus with Cyclopia. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2012, vol.30, n.1, pp. 88-93. ISSN 0717-9502. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022012000100015.
Cyclopia is a rare congenital malformation incompatible with life; it is characterized by the presence of a single eye in the center position, secondary to alobar holoprosencephaly. Cyclopia etiology is heterogeneous, with a prevalence of 1.05 in 100,000 births. We report a case of cyclopia with sinoftalmía in a fetus of 21 weeks where they use 3D multislice computed tomography as a complementary study.
