My Son Is 3 With Head Circumference Well Below 3rd Percentile, Also Called Microcephaly. He Also Has Multiple Cafe Au Lait Spots Which Are Areas Of Pigmentation All Over, Short Stature, Low Weight. He Had Periodic Fevers For A Long Time With No Known Cause, But This Has Subsided Some. He Seems To Be Normal Intelligence But Very Hyperactive. He Was Born At Term, 6 Lbs. He Did Spend About 10 Days Inpatient For A Fever That Lasted Several Weeks And Was Accompanied By A Rash. This Was At Age 11 Months. They Ruled Out Many Things But Never Found A Definitive Diagnosis. Please Help. My Husband And I Worry Every Day.
