Crouzon's Syndrome
Vanderbilt Craniofacial Treatment Center, March 11, 2005
Crouzon's syndrome is associated with a marked cessation of midfacial growth. Consequently, the middle portion of the child's face does not keep up with the mandible, resulting in very irregular facial characteristics.
This can be corrected surgically by advancing the middle portion of the patient's face, thus increasing the ability to occlude the teeth and protect the eyes while giving a more pleasing appearance. If left uncorrected, the eyes become so proptotic that blindness may ensue.
