VILLA QUIGUIRI, Alex Fabián; GAFAS GONZALEZ, Carlos; CRIOLLO CRIOLLO, Anabela del Rosario  and  ROQUE HERRERA, Yosbanys. Meckel Gruber Syndrome in an Indigenous Newborn with No Prenatal Control. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2017, vol.43, n.4, pp. 84-92. ISSN 1561-3062.

At José María Velasco Ibarra Hospital in Tena, Napo province, in the Republic of Ecuador, the case of a female neonate with Meckel Gruber Syndrome is reported. This infant is the result of a pregnancy with no prenatal follow-up, non-consanguineous indigenous parents, from the Tamiahurco Amazon community, in Misahuallí. This newborn had the diagnostic triad of polycystic hyperplastic kidneys, occipital encephalocele and bilateral postaxial polydactyly, which determined this disease diagnosis of certainty, in which at least two of these elements must be present. Other symptoms are oral, genital malformations, hepatic fibrosis and malformations of the Central Nervous System (CNS).

Keywords : Meckel-Gruber syndrome; congenital diseases; prenatal control.
