Acrania is a rare congenital disorder characterized with complete or partial absence of cranial plane bones. Facial and cervical bones are generally seen as normal. This condition has 100% mortality and seen in 1 of 20000 live births and mostly affect female babies. Anencephaly concordance is too often. Due to low recurrence rate in the following births routine genetic counseling is not recommended.
We analyzed 10.616 pregnant from the archive of Mustafa Kemal University, Obstetric Department between 2010 and 2014. 19 fetuses with acrania were detected. Mean pregnancy week was 14w 4d(12-28) and all fetuses with acrania were terminated. The incidence of a crania was found 0.2% in our region.
Acrania incidence is 0.2% in our region. This may be reduced to 0.03% with 0,4 mg folic acid support in reproductive ages.
