Clinical associations of GH deficiency in the neonatal period include breech presentation, midline facial defects, microphallus, hypoglycaemia and prolonged jaundice.

geographic distribution, and fitness effects of Microphallus turgidus
The infection of snails by Microphallus is thought to be genetically based because clonal genotypes vary in their levels of Microphallus infection (Dybdahl and Lively 1995a; Jokela et al.
Because infection by Microphallus has large fitness consequences, we were especially interested in the predictions when virulence was high.
Relations hotes-parasites du Trematode Microphallus papillorobustus (Rankin, 1940).
Key words: Microphallus sabanensis, digenetic trematode, Venezuela.
in the study area were found to be natural hosts of Microphallus sp.
We tested this hypothesis by studying the impact of the trematode Microphallus turgidus on the behavior and predation of its intermediate host, the grass shrimp Palaemonetes pugio.
In a recent cross-infection experiment, we found that Microphallus shows a cline in infectability of snails from shallow to deep in Lake Alexandrina (Lively and Jokela 1996).
cercariae) of Microphallus papillorobustus (Trematoda, Microphallidae) systematically migrate into the amphipod's brain, encyst in the cerebroid ganglia (Rebecq 1964) and consequently strongly alter their host behavior by inducing a positive phototactism, a negative geotactism and an aberrant-suicidal evasive behavior (Helluy 1983a,b).
An undescribed species of the digenetic trematode Microphallus is responsible for most trematode infections in lake populations of Potamopyrgus (Lively 1987).
Examination of Potamopyrgus parasites in several habitats within Lake Alexandrina has shown that risk of infection by Microphallus tends to be highest in the shallow-water habitat characterized by willow roots and lowest in the deep-water habitat dominated by the macrophyte, Elodea (Jokela and Lively 1995b).
Infection prevalences were calculated for all trematodes together, and for the most common trematode of these snails, Microphallus sp.
