Pfeiffer syndrome
A form of craniosynostosis that results in multiple physical defects, including broad thumbs and great toes; depressed nasal bridge and generally flat profile; low-set, slanted ears;, strabismus; and a prominent mandible. There may also be internal defects of the gallbladder, heart, inner ear, and other areas; and CNS abnormalities if there is a cloverleaf skull. Diagnosis is by comparison to similar syndromes, such as Alpert syndrome, and by chromosome analysis. Treatment is by surgery. See also acrocephalosyndactyly, fibroblast growth factor receptor 2.
