Acrania is a rare developmental anomaly characterized by a partial or complete absence of the skull bones along with absence of skin and other soft tissues over the exposed brain tissue. Such cases may be detected during antenatal ultrasonography or in aborted fetuses. It is a lethal anomaly and post natal survival is very rare. Placental adhesions with the exposed neural tissue in anencephalic babies had been reported earlier. A rare case of acrania born with placental adhesion surviving for 35 days after normal vaginal delivery is reported here.
