Abstract

Pfeiffer syndrome is one of a rare form of craniosynostosis syndrome, showing variable degree of craniosynostosis, midface hypoplasia, broad thumbs and toes and syndactyly. This is transmitted in autosomal dominant pattern and known to be related to mutations in FGFR (Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor) 1 or FGFR 2.
