Heading


ID#:15116
Description:This infant was born with an autosomal dominant disorder known as Apert’s syndrome, otherwise known as acrocephalosyndactyly, which involves malformations of the cranium, face, hands and feet. See PHIL 15117 and 15118, for two other views of this infant's condition.
Because the first branchial arch is involved, there is accompanying involvement of the maxilla, and mandible. There is a premature fusion of the cranial bones leading to abnormal bone growth. Note the webbing of the fingers of his right hand and toes of his both feet, also known as syndactyly.
