Abstract

Eleven children with cerebral gigantism or Sotos’ syndrome were assessed regarding their cognitive, emotional, and behavioral status. The children demonstrated high rates of emotional and behavioral disorders, but no specific pattern or personality style was detected. On the cognitive assessments, all of the children presented with cognitive impairment or mental retardation, the range of which was variable. As with other syndromes associated with developmental delay, there was a wide range of expression of problems.
