Growth charts of CMH812. The patient is a female with severe intrauterine and postnatal growth retardation head circumference (A) [<3rd centile]; weight (B) [<2nd centile], length (C) [<2nd centile], based on CDC growth chart for girls, age 0–20 months. Growth remained poor postnatally and she was briefly started on growth hormone, which was discontinued due to suspicion for a disorder of DNA repair/instability. At age 15 months she was ~5 SD below the mean for weight and length and ~3-4 SD below the mean for head circumference.
