Holoprosencephaly is a complex malformation of the brain associated with the median facial defects. Variability of the clinical picture is the characteristic of this anomaly. In most cases, the degree of severity of the facial anomaly correlates with the degree of damage to the brain. This article aims to present a rare case of child with a milder form of brain anomaly combined with a severe form of facial anomaly. The article also presents the application of a feeding stimulator to improve the child's quality of life. The anomaly was diagnosed by postnatal sonography of the brain, magnetic resonance imaging of the endocranium, and three-dimensional computed tomography of the craniofacial skeleton.
