• This report describes the computerized tomographic, pneumoencephalographic, and anatomic findings in a case of holoprosencephaly. Computerized tomography is suggested as the most accurate diagnostic method in defining the nature and extent of those anomalies related to the failure of cleavage of the prosencephalon. The value of this method in detecting less severely affected family members is evident.
