Crouzon Syndrome

Crouzon Syndrome is acondition diagnosed based on a pattern of cranial and facial malformations. It can be both hereditary and non-hereditary. A wide range of symptoms have been attributed to Crouzon Syndrome, but the standard craniofacial symptoms are: premature fusion of sutures, a “flat” sphenoid bone, exophthalmos (protruding eyes), a hypoplasic midface/small palate with subsequently compressed nasal passages, and a large jaw. Severity of all Crouzon symptoms varies from case to case.
