Cutis gyrata-acanthosis nigricans-craniosynostosis syndrome also known as Beare-Stevenson syndrome (BSS) is a severe form of syndromic craniosynostosis characterized by a variable degree of craniosynostosis with cloverleaf skull reported in over 50% of cases cutis gyrata corduroy-like linear striations in the skin acanthosis nigricans skin tags and choanal stenosis or atresia). Additional features include facial features similar to Crouzon disease ear defects (conductive hearing loss posteriorly angulated ears stenotic auditory canals preauricular furrows and narrow ear canals) hirsutism a prominent umbilical stump and genitorurinary anomalies (anteriorly placed anus hypoplasic labia hypospadias).
