Abstract

Crouzon’s Syndrome: Congenital craniosynostosis
characterised by the premature
in-utero closure of the coronal, sagittal, and
lambdoid sutures. It produces an abnormal
growth of the cranium, hypoplasia of the
jaw, and facial asimmetry. The case of a
five year old girl with Crouzon Syndrome
is presented; she consulted the service of
Paediatric Dentistry at School of Dentistry
of Universidad del Valle (Cali, Colombia).
This work highlights the multidisciplinary
approach and the orthopaedic pre-surgical
management performed, it involved an
intraoral fixed device for controlled expansion
with a Hyrax type screw and a facial
mask for maxillary protraction as treatment
before surgery. The surgery was performed
in mono-block and advancement with an
osteogenic distactor was done.
