Pfeiffer syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant disorder characterized by coronal craniosynostosis, brachycephaly, mid-facial hypoplasia, and broad and deviated thumbs and great toes. Pfeiffer syndrome occurs in approximately 1:100,000 live births. Clinical manifestations and molecular genetic testing are important to confirm the diagnosis. Mutations of the fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 (FGFR1) gene or FGFR2 gene can cause Pfeiffer syndrome....

A case of Central Diabetes Insipidus Associated with Brachycephaly
Woo Sik Kang, Mee Kyung Namgoong, Jae Seung Yang, Baek Keun Lim, Jong Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(2):282-287.   Published online February 15, 1994
Brachyecphaly is a kind of craniosynostosis. Because of premature closure of the coronal suture, the skull is shorter in the anteroposterior diameter but is widened with a high vault and the occiput and borehead are flattened. Diabetes insipidus had been reported in oxycephaly. We have experienced a case of central diabetes insipidus associated with brachcephaly. A brief review of related literatures...
A Case of Scaphocephaly in a Newborn.
Chan Uhng Joo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1985;28(3):297-300.   Published online March 31, 1985
Scaphocephaly is a kind of craniosynostosis. Because of premature closure of the sagittal suture in newborn with scaphocephaly, the lateral rgrowth of the head [is limited and the growth of the brain causes the head to expand in the occipitofrontal diameter. I have experienced a case of scaphocephaly in a newborn. A brief review of related literatures is included in...
