We have experienced a case of Potter syndrome recently. He was a newborn infant who suffered from severe respiratory distress soon after birth. His face was characterized by facies renalies and chest X-ray film revealed bilateral pneumothorax. Anuria since birth and findings of abdominal ultrasonography strongly suggested bilateral renal agenesis. Severe respiratory acidosis was progressed in spite of proper management and died at 11 hours after birth. The diagnosis was confirmed by autopsy findings consisted of bilateral pulmonary hypoplasia, absence of both kidneys, ureters, and renal arteries, hypoplastic urinary bladder, patent ductus arteriosus, and partial agenesis of corpus callosum. We report this case with brief review of the related literactures.
Key Words: Potter syndrome, Corpus callosum agenesis
