Abstract

BackgroundThe measurement of head circumference (HC) provides valuable anthropometric data for a child's growth during well child visits. There are few studies on the characteristics of macrocephaly (MC) diagnosed during well child visits. The aim of this study was to identify the characteristics of children with MC diagnosed during the well-child visits.
