It was very difficult to keep her awake or to wake her if she had fallen asleep, and on occasions she had even fallen asleep standing up. The mother reported that the child slept a lot but poorly, had snored from birth and slept almost 20h a day, going to bed at h and waking frequently, with repeated periods of asphyxia.

Physical examination revealed short stature, ridging along the cranial sutures, with a advanced coronal suture fused at the join of the orbit, prominent, bulging eyes, underdeveloped midface with maxillary hypoplasia, crowded teeth and high-arched palate Fig.

Scarring secondary to surgery performed at 10 months for syndactyly with membranes and proximal and mid-phalanges fused in the hands, along with pollex varus and hallux varus in the feet Fig. The patient was very sleepy throughout the examination and even fell asleep on the chair in the consulting room.

A diagnostic polysomnography showed: recording time min m , total sleep time A and B Characteristic facies of Apert syndrome with facial hypoplasia. C Syndactyly and sclerodactyly.

D Patient's baseline polysomnography showing predominance of obstructive apneas and recording from autoCPAP connected to the polygraph flow channels. She commenced treatment with an auto-CPAP, with an oronasal mask due to the high pressures required. Adaptation and compliance was very good.

Three months later, the patient showed great clinical improvement: she no longer had daytime sleepiness and was active, able to talk and attend school practically normally, changing the CPAP interface to a nasal mask. Craniosynostosis can be classified as isolated or syndromic.

Molecular genetic testing can confirm the diagnosis. In particular, surgeries for the LeFort III or monobloc midface distraction osteogenesis which detaches the midface or the entire upper face, respectively, from the rest of the skull, are performed in order to reposition them in the correct plane.

These surgeries are performed by both plastic and oral and maxillofacial OMS surgeons, often in collaboration. Syndactyly[ edit ] There is no standard treatment for the hand malformations in Apert due to the differences and severity in clinical manifestations in different patients.

Every patient should therefore be individually approached and treated, aiming at an adequate balance between hand functionality and aesthetics. However, some guidelines can be given depending on the severity of the deformities. In general it is initially recommended to release the first and fourth interdigital spaces, thus releasing the border rays.

Later the second and third interdigital spaces have to be released. Because there are three handtypes in Apert, all with their own deformities, they all need a different approach regarding their treatment: Type I hand usually needs only the interdigital web space release. First web release is rarely needed but often its deepening is necessary.

Thumb clynodactyly correction will be needed. In type II hands it is recommended to release the first and fifth rays in the beginning, then the second and the third interdigital web spaces have to be freed. The clynodactyly of the thumb has to be corrected as well.

The lengthening of the thumb phalanx may be needed, thus increasing the first web space. In both type I and type II, the recurrent syndactyly of the second web space will occur because of a pseudoepiphysis at the base of the index metacarpal.

This should be corrected by later revisions. Type III hands are the most challenging to treat because of their complexity.


First of all, it is advised to release the first and fourth webspace, thus converting it to type I hand. The treatment of macerations and nail-bed infections should also be done in the beginning.

For increasing of the first web space, lengthening of the thumb can be done.The point mutation increases the ligand-dependent activation of FGFR2 and thus of its isoforms. Many of the characteristic facial features of Apert syndrome result from the premature fusion of the skull bones.
