Microcephaly B

Note what signs you see.

I (W. Wertelecki, M.D.) see no evidence of dysmorphic signs – do you?

However, I suspect that in proportion to the face, the calvarium may be too small – perhaps this is an instance of microcephaly.

PERSPECTIVE: Talk is cheap – measure what is measurable is an imperative.

All newborns, presumably, have their head measured (fronto-occipital circumference) – parents should remember their child’s head circumference (and have it  recorded somewhere). This measure is a very critical signal whenever a child’s developmental progress is in question.
