Congenital Facial Abnormalities

Congenital deformities that affect the face and upper and lower jaws may include Apert, Crouzon, Treacher-Collins, Pierre Robin Complex and hemifacial microsomia syndromes, among other disorders. Treatment initially focuses on the ability to breathe and eat normally. Surgical treatment is usually delayed until adolescence in some patients with mild deformities. Recently, distraction osteogenesis has been used to treat patients at an earlier age.
