Treacher Collins syndrome
Included in the links to the various syndromes are brief descriptions which are intended to inform and are not intended for diagnosis. A geneticist who is a member of an experienced craniofacial team should make a diagnosis. Craniofacial differences can result from abnormal growth patterns of the face or skull, which involves soft tissue and bones. A craniofacial condition may include disfigurement brought about by birth defect, disease or trauma. Antley-Bixler Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that is primarily characterized by distinctive malformations of the head and facial craniofacial area and additional skeletal abnormalities.
Treacher Collins syndrome is a rare, genetic condition affecting the way the face develops — especially the cheekbones, jaws, ears and eyelids. These differences often cause problems with breathing, swallowing, chewing, hearing and speech. How severe the syndrome is varies widely from child to child. Treacher Collins syndrome is present when a baby is born congenital.
