Hrrrm.... I don't recall hearing/seeing much of Hypertelorism as a significant facet of Aicardi Syndrome, though I'm sure it may occur. In either regard, as Aicardi Syndrome incorporates Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum as a significant facet, wouldn't your noting of "2. congenital absent callosum" take care of it? E.g. listing Aicardi Syndrome is at that point redundant, since Aicardi Syndrome almost always includes ACC?

interesting point. This particular list was gleaned from Bob Schwartzman's "Neurologic Examination" book. Ask Bob if you dare.
