Juvenile hyaline fibromatosis (JHF) and infantile systemic hyalinosis (ISH) are rare, autosomal recessive disorders of the connective tissue caused by mutations in the gene encoding the anthrax toxin receptor 2 protein (ANTXR2) located on chromosome 4q21. Characteristically, these conditions present with overlapping clinical features, such as nodules and/or(More)
Pycnodysostosis is a rare autosomal recessive skeletal disorder involving a constellation of craniofacial manifestations including midface retrusion. We report the case of a 13-year-old girl with pycnodysostosis who presented with exorbitism, midface retrusion, malocclusion, and obstructive sleep apnea. Here, we describe the successful use of subcranial Le(More)
We describe an infant with severe aplasia cutis congenita of the scalp that was characterised by a full-thickness calvarial bone defect combined with the absence of dura mater complicated by sagittal sinus haemorrhage. The defect was successfully managed by closure with a local temporal flap combined with a periosteum patch to allow closure of the dura(More)
The organization and management of specialized cleft lip and palate centers in developing countries are challenging because of the lack of financial resources devoted to the national health care system. The treatment of cleft lip and palate is of low priority for health care and budgets; however, gradual progress is possible. As an example of how care might(More)
BACKGROUND The surgical management of craniofacial fibrous dysplasia is controversial. The purpose of this study was to report the surgical outcomes of individualized management of craniofacial fibrous dysplasia of a single institution. METHODS Data from patients (n = 20) with craniofacial fibrous dysplasia, who were surgically treated between 2007 and(More)
BACKGROUND Crouzon and Apert syndromes are the most common syndromic forms of craniofacial dysostosis. Apert syndrome has a broad clinical spectrum, including complex craniofacial involvement, as well as limiting deformities of the hands, feet, and other joints that require multiple surgical procedures when compared with Crouzon syndrome, which is generally(More)
BACKGROUND Characterizing the cutaneous upper lip height changes after unilateral cleft lip repair is very important to plan the surgical maneuvers, anticipate the need for overcorrection of the vertical dimension of the lips, and instruct the family on the postoperative outcomes. The aim of this study was to objectively analyze the asymmetry of upper lip(More)
BACKGROUND To report autologous free fat grafting as an isolated procedure to manage facial contour asymmetry of a subset of growing patients with craniofacial microsomia (CFM). METHODS A retrospective analysis of CFM patients (n = 11) with low socioeconomic and intellectual status, poor oral hygiene, living far from our center, Pruzansky-Kaban I/II(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to identify variables that affect orbital relapse after hypertelorbitism correction. METHODS The authors retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients who underwent hypertelorbitism correction at a single institution between 1975 and 2005. Bony interorbital distance was measured postoperatively and at(More)
Apert syndrome is a complex craniofacial deformity with a broad clinical spectrum that mainly affects the craniofacial skeleton, lower and upper limbs. The quality of life for patients born with Apert syndrome may be strongly affected by the limitations that this syndrome imposes. The aims of this study were to describe the quality of life of patients born(More)
