Summary

Marked intrauterine developmental retardation in a fetal case of Seckel syndrome was morphologically defined in the 29th week of gestation by comparing with a large number of length-matched and age-matched controls. Telencephalic micrencephaly with reduced neuroblast production, retarded functional differentiation of the pituitary gland, and generalized hypotrophy with craniofacial stigmata were observed.
