OMIA 000457-9913 : Hernia, brain in Bos taurus

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Inheritance: Despite this being listed as a definite single-locus disorder in Lerner (1944)'s comprehensive catalogue, there is insufficient evidence for such a cliam: the only evidence is a brief report of a single case by Shaw (1938), who also mentions that a still-born full sister also had the defect.
