Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report on a non-malformed child with severe microcephaly and profound psychomotor delay. Review of the delivery/birth records documented descriptions consistent with linear disruption of the umbilical cord. This rare anomaly typically leads to acute fetal distress and perinatal death. Severe microcephaly and psychomotor delay without other anomalies should prompt a careful review of the delivery/birth records to search for umbilical cord descriptions consistent with this diagnosis.
