Prenatal diagnosis of anterior parietal encephalocele with transvaginal sonography

Obstet Gynecol. 1990 Mar;75(3 Pt 2):489-91.


Transvaginal sonography identified an anterior parietal encephalocele that was not well-delineated by abdominal scanning. High resolution with access to the fetal head makes this modality ideal for studying the intracranial anatomy.
