  • He was born autistic! You cannot "reverse" his genetic make-up. so. He has a PTEN mutation that explains his autism (I said 'caused' in the vid.... poor choice of words perhaps)
  • 2009 Convention Welcome Video This video was played at "We Are Not Alone" - the 2nd Annual Microcephaly Convention. The Foundation for Children with Microcephaly recently expanded and we now help children diagnosed with Polymicrogyria, Lissencephaly and other closely related neurological disorders! Visit for more information.
  • Macrocephaly What exactly is Macrocephaly?
  • Head Circumference Another very important part of assessing brain development is measuring the growth of the brain. This is accomplished by measuring the head circumference, which is an accurate reflection of brain size. The brain grows to 80% of its adult volume during the first 2 years of life so many neurological diseases that occur early in life will impact the growth of the brain. A small head (microcephaly) or a large head (macrocephaly or hydrocephalus) can be key findings in explaining the neurological abnormalities of a child. It is essential to plot head circumference on a standardized head growth chart such as the Nellhaus chart.
  • Basal Cell Nevus Syndrome Dr. Shane Chapman, MD discusses Basal Cell Nevus Syndrome. See more at PLEASE RATE AND COMMENT!!! This rare disease is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait with high penetrance and variable expressivity. The major features are multiple BCCs which appear at birth or in early childhood. Numerous small pits are found on the palms and soles. Epithelium-lined jaw cysts, which commonly cause symptoms may be initially discovered by the dentist. Ectopic calcification with lamellar calcification of falx cerebri and a variety of skeletal abnormalities, especially of the ribs, skull, and spine are common features. A characteristic facies is present in approximately 70% of patients. Physical findings include ""coarse face"", relative macrocephaly, hypertelorism and frontal bossing. There is great variation in the number and behavior of the nevoid BCCs. The median number is 8. Although many patients have no BCCs or just a few, more than 1000 BCCs can be present. The first tumor occurs at a mean age of 23. Locally destructive tumors are not seen before puberty. Aggressive behavior can occur after puberty, and all patients must be followed closely. Most of the highly invasive tumors involve embryonic cleft areas of the face. Development of multiple BCCs is enhanced by exposure to light and x-ray irradiation, but they also occur on unexposed surfaces. Multiple bilateral jaw cysts are the presenting complaint in approximately 50% of patients; a dentist, RJ Gorlin ...
  • 如何~~挑選~~夢幻~~奇"精"??!! 如何~~挑選~~夢幻~~奇精??!! Can IMSI be efficient in situation of ICSI failure and teratospermy, with special study of macrocephaly? I. Hammoud, C. Hassen, MF Albert, F. Vialard, MO Bergere, J. Selva P-253 Article Outline • Copyright OBJECTIVE: Intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) is proposed in 2 situations: previous ICSI failure and severe teratozoospermia. IMSI allows to select, at high magnificationtopspermatozoa (normal size, normal shape, normal morphology) and thosetopinjected spermatozoa would allow better development. Macrocephalic sperm head syndrome is known to be associated with aneuploid and polyploid sperm content. IMSI could allow to select spermatozoa with normal chromosomal content. but no euploïd spermatozoa was found by IMSI of the macrocephalic sperms, thus IMSI is not the solution.The other results are encouraging but randomized studies are needed to confirm the better efficiency of IMSI compared to ICSI in case of previous ICSI failure or severe teratozoospermia.
