Also known as: Hyde Forster-McCarthy-Berry syndrome



X-linked intellectual disability-plagiocephaly syndrome is characterised by severe intellectual deficit, brachycephaly, plagiocephaly, prominent forehead and coarse facial features. It has been described in two males from one family. Two females belonging to the same family displayed moderate intellectual deficit but no craniofacial dysmorphism.

Plagiocephaly Flat head, Rhomboid shaped head, Asymmetry of the posterior head, Flattening of cranial vault, Flattening of skull, Flattening of cranium, Rhomboid shaped skull, Flattening of head, Deformational plagiocephaly, Rhomboid shaped cranium, Asymmetry of the posterior skull, Asymmetry of the posterior cranium, Positional plagiocephaly [more] Asymmetric head shape, which is usually a combination of unilateral occipital flattening with ipsilateral frontal prominence, leading to rhomboid cranial shape.
Intellectual disability Nonprogressive intellectual disability, Poor school performance, Mental-retardation, Dull intelligence, Nonprogressive mental retardation, Mental deficiency, Mental retardation, nonspecific, Low intelligence [more] Subnormal intellectual functioning which originates during the developmental period.
