Primary (congenital) occipital encephalomeningocele in a newborn born to
a mother despite folic acid supplementation
We described a case of neural tube defect (NTDs) viz., occipital
encephalomeningocele born to a mother with folic acid supplementation. A
wide interplay of genetic and environmental factors exists in its
causation. The folic acid confers advantage but the relationship with
causation of NTDs is still not clear.
