[Article in German]


In the case of a woman with Freeman-Sheldon syndrome clinical, radiographic and CT data were used to demonstrate specific craniofacial and dental characteristics. Three-dimensional surface reconstruction of the cranial morphology obtained from axial CT scans was found to provide the most useful means for analyzing the characteristic craniofacial deformities in this syndrome. Apart from the dentofacial structures also orthopedic disorders were evaluated clinically and radiographically with particular consideration of the cervical spine morphology.
