Pfeiffer Sydrome: Physical Traits

The Abdomen:
Based on our experience in Dallas, we believe that children with Pfeiffer syndrome are at higher risk for having a malrotation (the intestines are twisted in an abnormal way).  This is a condition makes it more likely that a child will have an intestinal obstruction, or blockage.  In addition, the appendix is abnormally located in the upper stomach (instead of the right lower stomach), among other problems.  This condition can be diagnosed with a test called an upper G.I., and if present, needs to be surgically treated.
