Apert syndrome

Acrocephalosyndactyly

Apert syndrome is a genetic disease in which the seams between the skull bones close earlier than normal. This affects the shape of the head and face.

Syndactyly

Fingers or toes (digits) may be fused together (syndactyly) or the webbing between them (inter-digital webbing) may extend far up the digits. Syndactyly is seen commonly between the 2nd and 3rd toes, and may sometimes be associated with a syndrome.
