Abstract: In this paper, we will describe a week old neonate who was referred to Black Lion Referral Hospital with a diagnosis of ambiguous genitalia and was screened for associated congenital anomalies. The neonate was evaluated with Trans-fontanel Ultrasound and Brain MRI, which showed the absence of the lateral and third ventricles and associated Intracranial multiple anomalies.
