Mandibulofacial dysostosis (Treacher Collins syndrome): a case report

J Natl Med Assoc. 1992 Dec;84(12):1051-4.


Mandibulofacial dysostosis, also known as Treacher Collins syndrome, is a rare congenital anomaly that must be identified in infancy to prevent irrevocable developmental impairment. Information is sparse in the current medical literature concerning this rare syndrome. This article reports a case of Treacher Collins syndrome with the presence of a scarring alopecia and acne keloidalis nuchae, which are possibly coincidental symptoms, but have not been previously described clinically in this malady.
