BACKGROUND Children with faciocraniosynostosis present skull base abnormalities and may develop hydrocephalus or cerebellar tonsils ectopia (CTE). Several pathophysiological hypotheses were formulated in the past decades to explain these associations. However, no study has described in a genetically homogeneous population with confirmed fibroblast growth… CONTINUE READING
