Congenital malformations of the central nervous system have varied presentations depending on the stage of embryological development when the insult occurred. We report a neonate with microcephaly associated with plate-like cortical calcification, probably secondary to an unidentified insult at around 11-12 weeks post-conceptional age causing an arrest of the proliferative phase. The associated vasculopathy probably caused diffuse cortical calcification.
