Apert's syndrome is an uncommon, congenital disturbance in the growth of bone and soft tissue affecting principally the head, the hands and the feet. So there is skull malformation, most often oxycephaly, associated with malformation of both hands and feet. This syndrome was first reported by Apert in 1906. Since that time, over 200 cases have been reported. Recently we have experienced two cases of typical Apert's syndrome. We made a brief literature review.
