Cleft Palate Craniofac J. 1997 Mar;34(2):151-3. doi: 10.1597/1545-1569_1997_034_0151_fsscmf_2.3.co_2.

Abstract

Objective: This is the first description of long-term follow-up of a case of Freeman-Sheldon syndrome. Microstomia was treated with a mouth expander for 2 to 3 hours per day before active orthodontic treatment. Separate impressions were necessary in each quadrant of both upper and lower jaws because of limited mouth opening.

Conclusion: Orthodontic treatment improved the patient's Class II malocclusion, which was accompanied by crowding and a deep bite.
