The case of a 7-year-old boy affected by Dubowitz syndrome is described. The characteristic features of the syndrome - intrauterine growth retardation, low neonatal weight, short stature, characteristic facies, atopic dermatitis and mental retardation - are discussed with reference to the absence of microcephaly and the presence of spontaneous keloids.
