    Many have a normal sized head (and even genitals) but their bodies look too small for their heads.

    Macrocephaly, having a large head, can be caused by many different things. Dwarfism is one of them.

    Macrocephaly may be caused by an enlarged brain or hydrocephalus. It may be associated with other disorders such as dwarfism, autism, neurofibromatosis, glutaric acidemia type 1 (GA1), tuberous sclerosis and Cowden disease (multiple hamartoma syndrome).
