Abstract

We report a premature infant who had multisutural craniosynostosis with pointed head, syndactyly of 2nd, 3rd and 4th fingers of all four limbs and other findings that were consistent with Apert syndrome. This is perhaps the first case of Apert Syndrome reported from Nepal.

Key words: Apert syndrome, craniosynostosis, syndactyly
