Head circumference or the occipitofrontal circumference (OFC) is the greatest of the cranial dimensions which passes around the forehead anteriorly and the external occipital protruberance posteriorly (Williams et al.
Of the 100 children, (68%) 68/100 had normal occipitofrontal circumference while (28%)28/100had microcephaly and (4%) 4/100 had macrocephaly.
Microcephaly is defined as an occipitofrontal circumference below the third percentile or greater than 2 SD from the reference range distribution; severe microcephaly is defined clinically as an occipitofrontal circumference of greater than 3 SD.
For this report, microcephaly was defined as head circumference (HC) (also known as occipitofrontal circumference) more than 2 SD below the mean for gestational age and sex, according to the Fetal International and Newborn Growth Consortium for the 21st Century (INTERGROWTH-21st) for fetal and newborn growth (https://intergrowth21.

The co-activation of the occipital lobe is not totally unexpected considering the existence of a fasciculus going between the occipital lobe and the prefrontal cortex: the inferior occipitofrontal fasciculus.
On physical examination at 5 months of age, his length and weight were below the first percentile, and his occipitofrontal circumference was at the 66th percentile (relative macrocephaly).
