Figure 3.90. This infant with leprechaunism (Donohue's syndrome) demonstrates the very severe intrauterine growth retardation. The infant had a birth weight of 750 g at a gestational age of 37 weeks. At age 3 weeks the weight was 780 g. Note the marked hirsutism, sunken cheeks, pointed chin, large mouth, thick lips, wide nostrils, large eyes, large ears, and enlarged clitoris.
Figure 3.91. A close-up of the face of the same infant as in Figure 3.90 at the age of 3 weeks again shows the severe growth retardation, sunken cheeks, pointed chin, large mouth, large eyes that have a very alert expression, and large ears. Note the gingival hyperplasia.
