Other neural tube defects

Encephalocele

This is a sac which is formed when the bones of the skull fail to develop. It may contain only cerebro-spinal fluid or part of the brain may also be present in the sac, resulting in brain damage.

Anencephaly

This is where the brain does not develop properly or is absent, and the baby is either still born or dies shortly after birth. Contact SBH Scotland for further information or download our Anencephaly information sheet.
