Primary microcephaly is an autosomal recessive condition characterised by a sloping forehead, flat occiput, normal-sized face and protruding ears. Affected individuals usually develop moderate to severe mental retardation. Early motor development however, is usually normal, and the brain is morphologically normal on imaging.
