Microcephaly is abnormal condition with many neurological symptoms and signs. Relative microcephaly may only be a loose term to describe comparatively smaller skull size, when compared to many children of same age. In growth charts such children may remain on 5-10th centiles' space of curve but have normal intelligence and no neurological issues.
