Craniofrontonasal Dysplasia

Craniofrontonasal Dysplasia Definition

Craniofrontonasal dysplasia is a rare genetic disorder characterized by an abnormal structure of the head and face, as well as the hands, feet and some skeletal bones. Among the symptoms of the disorder are widely spaced eyes, a cleft structure on the nose, an abnormally wide mouth, deformities in the fingers and toes, and sometimes underdeveloped parts of the face. The skull may as well suffer from certain malformations due to the premature joining of the sutures. It is currently described as an autosomal dominant disorder.
