  • Lissencephaly (“smooth brain,” LIS) is a malformation of cortical development associated with deficient neuronal migration and abnormal formation of cerebral convolutions or gyri. The LIS spectrum includes agyria, pachygyria, and subcortical band heterotopia. Our first classification of LIS and subcortical band heterotopia (SBH) was developed to distinguish between the first two genetic causes of LIS—LIS1 (PAFAH1B1) and DCX. However, progress in molecular genetics has led to identification of… CONTINUE READING
