Cleft Palate Colobomata Radial Synostosis Deafness
Type of disease: Rare conditions
Cleft lip and/or palate coloboma radial synostosis deafness, also known as Abruzzo-Erickson syndrome, is a combination of birth defects, or a syndrome. This syndrome is characterized by the presence of a cleft lip and palate, large ears with deafness, shortness, fusion of bones in the arms (radial synostosis), and a gap in some part of the eye (coloboma). Cleft lip and/or palate, a feature of this syndrome, is the incomplete formation of the lip and mouth, creating a gap in the upper lip as well as a small hole in the roof of the mouth.
