In early infancy, features may be subtle and extremely variable ranging from a classical round face, subcutaneous ossifications, seizures, subclinical hypothyroidism to mild delay in acquisition of milestones (8,10,11,12,13), while other manifestations such as brachymetacarpia, short stature, and mental retardation tend to become apparent relatively late in childhood.
