CRETINISM


The head and face broad and flat,
The eyes set wide apart,
The body-growth stunted,
The tongue protruded,

With squeaky voice,
The child is not wise.
The skin thick, dry and coarse,
The hair rough, sparse and coarse.

The thickened neck small and short,
With supraclavicular pads of fat.
The bulging tummy resembles a pot,
And umbilical hernia resembles a spout.
