Dandy-Walker syndrome indicates the association of cystic dilatation of fourth ventricle, dysgenesis of the cerebellar vermis and a high position of the tentorium. Dandy-Walker syndrome has an estimated prevalence of about 1 in 30,000 births and is found in 4% to 12% of all cases of infantile hydrocephalus. And trisomy 18 was present in 4.8% of the Dandy-Walker syndrome. Trisomy 18 is a chromosomal aneuploid, which results in multiple severe structural abnormalities that mostly involve the heart, extremities, face, and brain. We experienced a case of Edward syndrome associated with Dandy-Walker syndrome. She did not want to terminate her pregnancy. So, we reviewed a Edward syndrome with Dandy-Walker syndrome and presented the final result in full term delivery.
Key Words: Edward syndrome, Dandy-Walker syndrome, Full term delivery
