Holoprosencephaly

What is Holoprosencephaly (HPE)?

Holoprosencephaly is a serious brain defect that occurs during the first few weeks after conception. In HPE, the forebrain of the developing embryo does not divide to form the right and left sides of the brain. This results in defects in the development of the brain structure and function and often facial defects as well.
