A rare case of microcephaly in a newborn infant combined with a severe congenital deformity of the nervous system, amounting to an almost total absence of the brain, is decribed. The skull of this abnormal case showed an advanced type of microcephaly, and a comparison is made between previously reported cases of microcephaly in adults and the present infantile example.
