This report describes a new syndrome of dysgenesis of corpus callosum with other anomalies, presenting as microcephaly, mental retardation, spasticity, and unusual facial appearance in 2 Chinese brothers and their maternal cousins. To date, there has not been any case reported in the Chinese population of this syndrome. All 4 patients in this report present with the same unusual face. Hydrocephalus and/or interhemispheric cyst were found among them. This syndrome is transmitted as an X-linked trait. The nosology is reviewed and discussed.
