Apert syndrome is an uncommon, congenital disorder characterised by malformation of the skull, most often acrocephaly or oxycephaly, in association with symmetrical syndactyly of both hands and feet. It is due to disturbance in the growth of bone and soft tissue affecting principally the head, the hands and the feet. The original description was presented by Troquart in 1886, and acrocephalosyndactyly was named by Apert in 1906. Since then, more than 200 cases have been reported in the world upto 1970. Recently, we have experienced three cases for typical Apert syndrome and made a brief related literature review.
Key Words: apert syndrome, acrocephaly, syndactyly
