Abstract

Cyclopia is a deformation of the facial skeleton with one eye orbit formed in the place where both eyes should be present. Its rate is almost 1 in 100,000 births including stillbirths are identified as cyclopean. To our knowledge a cyclopean which is including true cyclopia, proboscis, HPE, but normal nose has been never reported. In this current study we describe a second trimester fetus with, single bony orbit, proboscis; but normal nose.
