Cyclopia is a rare congenital malformation incompatible with life; it is characterized by the presence of a single eye in the center position, secondary to alobar holoprosencephaly. Cyclopia etiology is heterogeneous, with a prevalence of 1.05 in 100,000 births. We report a case of cyclopia with sinoftalmía in a fetus of 21 weeks where they use 3D multislice computed tomography as a complementary study.

KEY WORDS: Cyclopia; Holoprosencephaly; Computer tomography; Prenatal diagnosis.
