Purpose Hydranencephaly is a congenital condition characterized by the complete or near-complete absence of the cerebral cortex and basal ganglia, while central diabetes insipidus (CDI) is a condition characterized by the inability to concentrate urine due to a deficiency in antidiuretic hormone (ADH). CDI is known to occur in midline congenital malformations such as holoprosencephaly and septo-optic dysplasia, but its association with hydranencephaly is less well-established. Methods We reported two cases of hydranencephaly complicated by CDI. We also performed a systematic review of the SCOPUS and PubMed databases for case reports and case series of patients with hydranencephaly and CDI, and compiled data on the clinical features and treatment options. Results Seven cases of hydranencephaly complicated by CDI were identified from the systematic review in addition to the two cases reported here, resulting in a total of nine cases. The patients’ age ranged from 4 days to 4 years, and there was a female sex predilection (3.5:1).

Abstract

Purpose Hydranencephaly is a congenital condition characterized by the complete or near-complete absence of the cerebral cortex and basal ganglia, while central diabetes insipidus (CDI) is a condition characterized by the inability to concentrate urine due to a deficiency in antidiuretic hormone (ADH). CDI is known to occur in midline congenital malformations such as holoprosencephaly and septo-optic dysplasia, but its association with hydranencephaly is less well-established. Methods We reported two cases of hydranencephaly complicated by CDI. We also performed a systematic review of the SCOPUS and PubMed databases for case reports and case series of patients with hydranencephaly and CDI, and compiled data on the clinical features and treatment options. Results Seven cases of hydranencephaly complicated by CDI were identified from the systematic review in addition to the two cases reported here, resulting in a total of nine cases. The patients’ age ranged from 4 days to 4 years, and there was a female sex predilection (3.5:1). Patients most commonly presented with macrocephaly, developmental delay, and seizures, with dysmorphic features noted in 33%. In addition to CDI, other endocrinologic derangements included hypothyroidism (22%), hypocortisolemia (22%), and panhypopituitarism (22%).
