General Discussion
Craniofrontonasal dysplasia is a really uncommon inherited condition defined by irregularities of the head and face (craniofacial area), hands as well as feet, and particular skeletal bones. Significant signs of this condition may include widely spaced eyes (ocular hypertelorism), a groove (cleft) on the pointer of the nose, an unusually broad mouth, malformations of the fingers and toes, and/or underdevelopment of parts of the face (midface hypoplasia), such as the temple, nose, and chin. On top of that, the head could have an uncommon shape because of early closure of the fibrous joints (sutures) between specific bones in the head (coronal synostosis). Craniofrontonasal dysplasia adheres to X-linked inheritance in most family members, but women are more badly impacted than males. An autosomal leading type of the condition has actually likewise been gone over in the clinical literature.
