MACROCEPHALY/MEGALENCEPHALY SYNDROME, AUTOSOMAL RECESSIVE; MGCPH


Description

Macrocephaly refers to an abnormally enlarged head inclusive of the scalp, cranial bones, and intracranial contents. Macrocephaly may be due to megalencephaly (true enlargement of the brain parenchyma), and the 2 terms are often used interchangeably in the genetic literature (reviews by Olney, 2007 and Williams et al., 2008). Autosomal recessive macrocephaly/megalencephaly syndrome is characterized by an enlarged cranium apparent at birth or in early childhood. Affected individuals have intellectual disability and may have dysmorphic facial features resulting from the macrocephaly (summary by Alfaiz et al., 2014).

Most common symptoms of MACROCEPHALY/MEGALENCEPHALY SYNDROME, AUTOSOMAL RECESSIVE; MGCPH

  • Intellectual disability
  • Seizures
  • Global developmental delay
  • Abnormal facial shape
  • Cognitive impairment
