Abstract
Hydranencephaly is a rare condition in which the brain's cerebral hemispheres are absent and replaced by sacs filled with cerebrospinal fluid. The prognosis for children with hydranencephaly is generally poor, so many children with this disorder die before the age of 1 year. We experienced a patient with hydranencephaly who showed prolonged survival until age of 22 years. To our limited knowledge, this case may be the longest survival of a patient with hydranencephaly in the world.
Key Words: Hydranencephaly, Survival, Prolonged, Adult
