Abstract: Crouzon Syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder and causes the mutation of the genes fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) and fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3). The case of an 8 month old female was to become the study of an experimental technique used to correct the facial contours characterised by Crouzon Syndrome. The proposed treatment was that of min-face distraction by utilising the soft bone due to the patient’s young age. No sectioning of the bone would be done and the distraction would need to be completed before the calcification of the cranial bones and sutures.
