Abstract

Lissencephaly is a rare brain malformation characterized by a smooth cerebral surface, thickened cortical mantle and microscopic evidence of incomplete neuronal migration. Association of congenital hypothyroidism with lissencephaly is seldom reported. We report a case of lissencephaly with congenital hypothyroidism.

Keywords: dysmorphism; hypothyroidism; lissencephaly; Miller-Dieker syndrome; Norman-Roberts syndrome
