Neural tube defects (NTDs) are the most common malformations accounting for 0.5-1.3 cases/1000 live births with multifactorial etiology. Anencephaly and craniospinal rachischisis are open NTDs. Associated malformations are noted in anencephaly, indicating some etiological heterogeneity. Here, we report an anencephalic fetus with craniospinal rachischisis and multiple other anomalies.
