Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Microcephaly with sacral agenesis and associated defects has rarely been reported. Presented here are 2 unrelated microcephalic infants having agenesis of the lower spine, foot deformities, urologic anomalies, and various other defects. Both family histories were essentially uninformative, but 2 second cousins of Case 1 had clubfoot. Karyotypes were normal for both patients. Each mother received hormone treatment early in her pregnancy.
