Beare-Stevenson cutis gyrata syndrome

Beare-Stevenson cutis gyrata syndrome is a medical disorder that commonly affects skin abnormalities and premature fusion of certain bones of the skull. This early fusion helps prevents the skull from growing normally and alters the head and face's appearance. Several of Beare-Stevenson's cutis gyrata syndrome's characteristic facial features result from the skull bone's premature fusion. The skull bones' early fusion also influences brain development, causing delayed growth and intellectual disability, which leads to delayed growth and intellectual impairment. Cutis gyrata is also characteristic of this condition. In addition, thick, dark, velvety areas of skin can be found on the hands and feet as well as in the genital region. A blockage of the nasal passages, a malformation of the airways, overgrowth of the umbilical stump, and anomalies of the genitalia and anus can be among the signs and symptoms of Beare-Stevenson cutis gyrata syndrome.
