    A second family is described with a combination of defective thymus-dependent immunity and cerebral palsy.

This genetic entity of presumed autosomal recessive inheritance is clearly distinguished from ataxia-telangiectasia. Immunological abnormalities should be sought in other familial or unexplained cerebral palsy syndromes.
