Based on gross and post-mortem findings the malformation kid was identified as holocardius acephalus with fetal anasarca. Holocardius acephalus is an imperfect individual in which the cranial part and thoracic cavity are absent. Monster may be due to error in the cell division at the embryonic stage or expression pattern of an abnormal gene or may arise when early pregnant doe exposed to the teratogens.
