Meckel Gruber Syndrome In A Nigerian Child: A Case Report
Meckel Gruber syndrome is a rare clinical condition that is fatal. It occurs globally and early diagnosis through prenatal ultrasound will assist management.
We report a case of Meckel Gruber syndrome who survived for 6 days. Both parents are first cousins and a similar presentation had been reported in a previous sibling who was delivered as stillbirth. We concluded on the need to introduce pre-natal anomaly ultrasound scan especially in localities with high rate of consanguineous couples.
