Resumen

TOIRAC ROMANI, Carlos Andrés et al. Echography of congenital malformations of the central nervous system. MEDISAN [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.2. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and prospective study was conducted in 173 pregnant women attended at the Provincial Department of Clinical Genetics of Santiago de Cuba, from January, 2000 to December, 2004, to identify congenital malformations of the central nervous system detected by means of echography. The most frequent malformation was the hydrocephaly, followed by the fusion defects of the spine, associated with the hydrocephaly and the absence of cranial cavity. There was a prevalence of altered alpha fetoprotein and of elevated amniotic fluid.

Palabras clave : echography; pregnancy; congenital malformations; central nervous system; hydrocephaly; acranius; genetic study; alpha fetoprotein.
