With the progressive explosion in genetic info discovery, it's crucially very important to acknowledge the underlying barriers of medical prediction in genetics.

Note the absence of the cerebellar vermis with fusion of both cerebellar hemispheres, with the “keyhole-shaped” fourth ventricle Joubert Syndrome Signs on MRI ¼ Absence or severely hypoplastic cerebellar vermis, with fusion of both cerebellar hemispheres. ¼ The fourth ventricle has a characteristic “keyhole appearance” due to the fusion of the cerebellar peduncles and inferior colliculi (Fig. 1). Joubert syndrome (JS) is a neuronal migration disorder of the cerebellum characterized by hypoplasia or agenesis of the superior cerebellar vermis, enlargement of the fourth ventricle, and cystic lesions of the viscera.
