AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY 136:373 (2008) ERRATUM: I. Hershkovitz, L. Kornreich, Z. Laron (2007) Comparative skeletal features between Homo ﬂoresiensis and patients with primary growth hormone insensitivity (Laron syndrome). Am. J. Phys. Anthropol. 134:198–208. Figure 1 on page 200 does not show the lower part of the mandible. The authors regret this error, and are here adding an additional ﬁgure which also shows the mental area. As can be seen from this picture (and also in other pictures now available on our website: www.tau.ac.il/*anatom2/), the mandible in LS patients is very small due to underdevelopment in the forward direction. The chin is under-developed, part of the char- acteristic acromicria typical for GH/IGF-I deﬁciency. The rounded chin seen in living LS patients is due to a thick layer of subcutaneous adipose tissue in this region (see MRI in website). We would like to stress again that the 57 mutations that have so far been described in Laron syndrome (in patients residing around the world) produce large morphological variability of dwarfed phenotypes, with and without a chin.
