What is Saethre-Chotzen syndrome?

Saethre-Chotzen syndrome is a type of craniosynostosis first identified by Saethre and Chotzen in the early 1930s. Affected individuals have very variable features, making the diagnosis of new cases difficult.

It is usually the coronal sutures  that are affected, and it may also be accompanied by droopy eyelids (ptosis), short fingers, joining of the fingers (syndactyly), broad toes and fusion of bones in the neck.
