Maternal hypothyroidism is known to cause an array of complications, maternal and fetal. Some of them include infertility, abortion, still birth, pre-term labor, fetal distress, birth defects, low birth weight and low IQ. We present a case of 32-year-old multiparous woman with hypothyroidism whose pregnancy was terminated in mid-gestation because of development of holoprosencephaly. Holoprosencephaly is failure of the forebrain to divide into distinct lateral cerebral hemispheres.
