This review critically examines the findings which characterize the dysmorphic, radiologic and behavioral phenotype of Microcephalic Osteodysplastic Primordial Dwarfism (MOPD) and has an historical perspective on it. MOPD is a group of primordial dwarfism syndromes with prenatal onset growth retardation, a typical craniofacial appearance and behavioral phenotype. In 1959, Mann and Russell have described the first case in a detailed report, and named "microcephalic midget of extreme type". In their report; based on historical records and a small painting, they pointed "Mademoiselle Crachami" as the oldest known case.
