Seckel syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by low birth weight, short but proportionate stature, microcephaly, moderate to severe mental retardation and typical facial features mimicking bird including receding forehead and chin, a prominent beaked nose and large eyes. A number of CNS anomalies have been reported in literature that are mental retardation, seizures, pachygyria, arachnoid cysts, large basal ganglia, agenesis of corpus callosum, hypoplasia of cerebellar vermis and cerebral aneurysms.
