Abstract

The cases in this perinatal series of rhombencephalosynapsis showed a very poor prognosis. The presence of ventriculomegaly on prenatal ultrasound imaging should alert the physician to consider rhombencephalosynapsis in the differential diagnosis. MRI appears to be the imaging modality of choice in establishing the diagnosis.
