Lissencephaly is a rare abnormality of brain development characterized by incomplete neuronal migration and a smooth cerebral surface. Three types of lissencephaly are recognized. Type I is characterized by microcephaly and dysmorphic facies. Type II usually lacks characteristic facies but exhibits macrocephaly from hydrocephalus, eye anomaly, and/or congenital muscular dystrophies. Type III is characterized by microcephaly without any characteristic dysmorphic facial features. We have experienced a case of Type II lissencephaly (Walker-Warburg syndrome). In this case lissencephaly, hydrocephalus, hypoplasia of corpus callosum, hypoplasia of septum pellucidum, retinal dysplasia, optic atrophy, nystagmus was noticed. So we presented this case with a review of refer- ential literatures.
Key Words: lissencephaly, Walker-Warburg syndrome
