Holoprosencephaly is a defect in the development of the front part of the brain and the bones of the skull and face in some babies.Without being able to see your baby it is not possible for me to make a diagnosis of his problem. Your child should be seen by a paediatrician who is experienced with this type of problem.The diagnosis can only be made at an academic paediatric department where the necessary expert will be able to examine your baby.
