Key points:

• Autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH) is a genetic disorder in which an affected subject is born with a head circumference >3 SD below the expected mean and is mentally retarded.

• We report a novel locus (MCPH6) mapped to chromosome 13q12.2 in a Brazilian family.

• The minimal critical region spans 6 Mb between markers AL139378GT17 and D13S1244 with a maximum two point lod score of 6.25.
