end up in miscarriage(1). It occurs due to lack of cleavage of cereal hemisphere into right and left cereal hemisphere. This severe form results in children being born with just one eye and synophthalmia in which two globes 
(right,left) are partially fused in median position. Typically cyclopia present with non–functioning nose in the form of a probosis, also mentioned in greek mythology. We report a cyclops in kurnool medical college.
