Diagnosis and evaluation of crouzen Syndrome: A Rare Case Report

ABSTRACT

Background: Crouzen syndrome is a rare genetic disorder characterized by distinctive malformations of the skull and facial region. Premature cranial suture is the most common skull abnormality. Considering the general paucity of cases in the Indian literature, we present a case report of a 18-year-old male having all the features of classical crouzen syndrome.The differential diagnosis of the condition and treatment options are discussed. Although the syndrome has typical clinical features, the relative rarity of the condition still poses a diagnostic dilemma.

Keywords: Craniosynostosis, crouzens syndrome, craniofacial dysostosis, hypertelorism
