Common Description

Crouzon Syndrome is a Craniosynostosis Syndrome, that involves the premature fusion of multiple cranial sutures and associated facial abnormalities.

Medical Description



Characteristics

  • Premature fusion of multiple cranial sutures result in the skull shape being short and wide.
  • Upper jaw is underdeveloped, which gives the appearance of a prominent lower jaw
  • Teeth in the upper jaw are well behind the teeth of the lower jaw
  • Eyes are protrusive, due to shallow orbital cavities and poorly developed roofs and floors of the orbits
  • Nose may be "parrot beaked" causing constriction compensated by mouth breathing and associated snoring

Our Recommendation

Management by a multi-disciplinary craniofacial team.
