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.
