Prenatal ultrasound diagnosed iniencephaly apertus at 21 weeks' gestation. In this rare central nervous system (CNS) malformation the brain and neck show the main pathologies. Retroflexion of the head with exaggerated cervicothoracic lordosis is always present, and CNS malformations in the form of anencephaly, spina bifida and encephalocele are often present. The ultrasonic diagnosis should be based on the finding of extreme dorsiflexion of the head accompanied by an abnormally short and deformed spine.
