Abstract: Lissencephaly is a rare congenital disorder or malformation in which there is absence of the convolutions of the cerebral cortex and thus the brain surface is smooth with no gyri or sulci. The paucity in the development of brain gyri and sulci is due to defective neuronal migration during 9-13 weeks. A case of 27 weeks still born male fetus with lissencephaly is presented along with a review of literature.
Keywords: Lissencephaly, congenital disorder, neuronal migration
