Figure 2: Dome-shaped protruberance in anterior parietal region and increased height of the skull

Mentions: Examination revealed abnormal turribrachycephalic head contour (tall and AP shortened), flat occiput and a protuberant frontal region. Ocular proptosis, strabism, hypertelorism, down sliding lateral palpebral fissures were present. He had depressed nasal bridge and a thick nose with a bulbous tip and cross bow-shaped lips. He had midfacial deficiency with hypoplastic and retruded maxilla (Figs 1 and 2). Bilateral symmetrical syndactyly with complete fusion of all the five digits of both hands with inwardly placed thumb was present, also syndactyly was present with both feet with deformation of the great toe. The fused fingers and toes had separate nails (Figs 3A to 4). Intraorally, there was absence of teeth, V-shaped maxillary arch and a pseudocleft palate (Fig. 5). There was no other apparent congenital malformation, and systemic examination revealed no other abnormality.
