  • LISSENCEPHALY (agyria-pachygyria) is a human brain malformation manifested by a smooth cerebral surface and abnormal neuronal migration1,2. Identification of the gene(s) involved in this disorder would facilitate molecular dissection of normal events in brain development3. Type 1 lissencephaly occurs either as an isolated abnormality or in association with dysmorphic facial appearance in patients with Miller–Dieker syndrome4,5. About 15% of patients with isolated lissencephaly and more than 90… CONTINUE READING
