A 6-week-old baby boy was referred by the paediatricians. A health visitor alerted the GP as the child's head circumference was raised on two successive measurements and she was concerned. The child was born by a normal vaginal delivery. The pregnancy was uneventful; the mother had already had two older children with no medical problems. Both the 12- and 20-week ultrasound scans were normal. Since birth the baby had been feeding well and not crying unduly. He has not had other symptoms such as fevers or unusual patterns of vomiting.
