Apert syndrome causes abnormal development of a deformed skull, hands, and feet without fingers.
Children with Apert syndrome often have to have surgery to release the bones of the skull to give the brain a chance to develop normally.
Children who have surgery early will have more intellectual resilience.
Doctors have recorded a few cases of this rare Apert Syndrome.
Specifically, in 2017, 8 years old, suffered from Aperts syndrome.
The 8 years old’s expression is hands and feet without fingers.
He also has cleft palate, head misalignment and abnormal bulging eyes.
At a HCMC hospital, he underwent surgery to separate his fingers.
Apert syndrome is a genetic disorder, caused by a rare mutation on a single gene, the majority of which occurs randomly.
This mutated gene is usually responsible for directing the bones to bind together at the right time during development.
According to experts, about one out of every 65,000 babies born has Apert syndrome, which is quite rare.
