Iniencephaly

Please click to enlarge.

Note what signs you see.

We (Drs. S. Kalynka and W. Wertelecki) see a mass protruding from the occipital area and a virtually absent neck. The term “inien” points to neck. This is the first of several images to be posted next.

PERSPECTIVE: The cranial occipital bone is strictly speaking a vertebra. In iniencephaly the neck vertebra (cervical) are not developed or malformed. This instance is presented in a gallery of photographs and further explained in a video.
