Background: Alobar holoprosencephaly is a rare disorder of brain development. Most of the cases have facial abnormalities and the survival of such children is usually not prolonged. Case Description: We are reporting a 2-month-old female child presented with seizures and delayed developmental milestones. Interestingly, she has no facial abnormality which is quite unusual. The management of such children is difficult and individualized. Conclusion: The counseling of the parents should be done regarding the severity and outcome of such congenital disease and also the importance of the antenatal check-up during a future pregnancy.
