Pfeiffer Syndrome

Acrocephalosyndactyly, type V.

An inherited disorder, Pfeiffer syndrome manifests in a host of craniofacial, dental and soft-tissue anomalies. The most common presenting characteristics are: acrocephaly; hypertelorbitism; brachycephaly; a beaked nose; and a highly arched or cleft palate. It may, on occasion, also involve impeded mental development, hearing loss and other more rare phenomena.
