Oxycephaly


Presentation

  • The papilloedema if present subsides. The progress of optic atrophy is stayed. Headache is relieved and the vision ww hat remains of it, is preserved from further deterioration.[ijo.in]
  • The anomalies are organized by anatomical system and presented in a consistent manner, including details of the clinical presentation, epidemiology, embryology, treatment and prevention for each anomaly.[books.google.de]

  • Syndactyly of the fingers is sometimes present as well. Clefting of the soft and hard palates is commonly present and a few patients have had joint contractures. Hearing loss of all types has been reported. Mental development seems to be normal.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]

High Sloping Forehead
  • A short antero-posterior diameter with a high sloping forehead is rather typical of Oxycephaly. Nystagmus is not uncommonly seen and partial optic atrophy of the post neuritic or secondary type is usually found.[ijo.in]
Nystagmus
  • Nystagmus which may be present is of the ocular type. Headache is an almost constant complaint. It tends to disappear about the age of 8 years and comes back with severity in adult life. Convulsions may occur.[ijo.in]

Convergence Nystagmus
  • Frequently also there is a weakness or loss of convergence. Nystagmus which may be present is of the ocular type. Headache is an almost constant complaint. It tends to disappear about the age of 8 years and comes back with severity in adult life.[ijo.in]

Treatment

  • Possible healthcare treatment Options Treatments and potential treatments could be applied to alleviate the symptoms. Specialists could be consulted to help on the mental development of the patient.[besttreatmenthq.com]
  • Treatment Treatment Options: There is no known treatment except for cranioplasty and repair of palate clefting.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis - Acrocephaly pulmonary stenosis mental retardation Prognosis largely depends on the age at operation. Craniosynostosis can result in brain compression and mental retardation unless relieved by early craniectomy.[checkorphan.org]

Etiology

  • Etiology Etiology is unknown. Diagnostic methods Diagnosis is based on clinical examination, X-rays and 3D CT scans of the skull. MRI exploration of the Chiari type I malformation and ophthalmologic examinations are also required for diagnosis.[orpha.net]
  • The etiology is obscure. The most probable cause is a premature ossification of the cranial sutures, but the underlying cause is unknown. There is not even a good theory. Syphilis does not seem to[jamanetwork.com]

Epidemiology

  • The anomalies are organized by anatomical system and presented in a consistent manner, including details of the clinical presentation, epidemiology, embryology, treatment and prevention for each anomaly.[books.google.de]
  • Summary Epidemiology Prevalence is unknown. Clinical description The mean age at diagnosis is around six years.[orpha.net]

  • ACROCEPHALY THE sutures of the skull prevent adjacent bones from uniting, and allow growth of the cranium and its contents. When a suture disappears the bones fuse and growth ceases locally.[kundoc.com]
  • Treatment Surgery is indicated before one year of life and preferably before the first 6 months if damage to the optic nerves is to be prevented.[ijo.in]
  • Tea tree oil : Tea tree oil is purported to have antiseptic properties, and has been used traditionally to prevent and treat infections.[livingnaturally.com]
