Crouzon Syndrome in Children

  • Overview

    Crouzon syndrome is a genetic birth disorder characterized by the premature joining of certain bones of the skull during development, which affects the shape of the head and face.

    • Most children with Crouzon syndrome are of normal intelligence.
    • Common features of this syndrome include:
      • wide-set, bulging eyes
      • crossed eyes (strabismus)
      • beaked nose
      • underdeveloped upper jaw
      • protruding lower jaw
      • overcrowding of teeth
      • high-arched palate
