    We report on the prenatal diagnosis of a case of cebocephaly, alobar holoprosencephaly, and microcephaly associated with a de novo proximal interstitial deletion of the long arm of chromosome 14: del(14)(q13q21.1) or (q13q21.2). This is the third case of holoprosencephaly in association with a deletion in this region. The present report concerns the association between prenatal craniofacial development, a holoprosencephaly locus, and the chromosomal segment 14q13.
