Craniofacial Anomalies

Craniofacial anomalies encompass many different conditions that cause irregularities of the face and head. The most common conditions include cleft lip, cleft palate and craniosynostosis syndromes, in which one or more bones of the skull and face fuse prematurely.

Craniofacial anomalies may result from a birth defect, injury or tumor, and they vary considerably in the symptoms they cause and their severity.
