What is Microcephaly?
Microcephaly occurs when issues with the growth and development of the brain lead to the development of a much smaller head than the average. It is defined as any head measuring 2 standard deviations below the standard measurement.
Microcephaly, or a smaller head than the average, may be caused by exposure of the developing fetus to toxic chemicals including alcohol through the mother. Genetic syndromes, serious infections and severe malnutrition affecting the developing fetus may also cause microcephaly.
