Crouzon Sydrome: Physical Traits

The Mouth, Palate, and Airway:
One result of the midface being too small is that the palate, or roof of the mouth, has a very high arch. This high arch pushes up the floor of the nose, making it very difficult for children to breath through their noses. Another result of this raised nasal floor is that parents will notice that their toddler's noses seem to "run" all the time. This is frequently improved following surgery to the midface.
