Abstract

Acrania is a rare congenital anomaly and characterized by partial or complete absence of the calvarium. Although acrania associated with anencephaly is a well recognized entity but isolated acrania is a rare anomaly. Ultrasound allows early diagnosis of this anomaly. The fetus was found to have a completely formed brain, base of the skull and facial structures but lacking a cranium. Authors present a rare case of acrania.
