Figure 1: Patient phenotypic characteristics support iniencephaly. (a) Significant shortening of the spinal column by marked lordosis and hyperextension of the malformed cervicothoracic column is evident; deflected up face, or neck hyperextended, the mandibular skin is directly continuous with the anterior thorax, which is asymmetric and barreled. Absence of neck, low-set ears, and flat convex feet. (b) medial, thoracolumbar defect, 5 cm × 5 cm, suggestive of spina bifida with myelomeningocele
