Resumen

MAITA QUISPE, Freddy et al. Sirenomelia, a clinical case report and literature review. Gac Med Bol [online]. 2012, vol.35, n.2, pp. 80-83. ISSN 1012-2966.

The sirenomelia is a rare congenital anomaly, whose main characteristic is the fusion of the lower extremities, the etiology is still unk-nown, but there are several theories raised to determine the origin of this rare entity. Prenatal diagnosis is difficult, and usually is asso-ciated with oligohydramnios. Associated malformations are highly variable, but usually incompatible with life, so the prognosis is poor. The following article reports a case of a newborn with sirenomelia, Hospital Obrero N°2 de la Caja Nacional de Salud, that due to the association of bilateral renal agenesis, has a poor prognosis and died within eight hours of life.

Palabras clave : sirenomelia; fusion of the lower extremities; renal agenesis.
