What is Pfeiffer Syndrome?
Pfeiffer Syndrome is a rare disorder that occurs when a person’s chromosomes do not match up properly. This can cause problems with the development of a person’s body and brain.
There is no specific cause for Pfeiffer Syndrome, but it may be caused by a genetic mutation or birth defect. Symptoms typically develop during childhood or early adulthood and can include abnormalities in skin, hair, and eyes.
Most people with Pfeiffer Syndrome experience some degree of disability, but there is often considerable variation in the severity of symptoms. Some people with Pfeiffer Syndrome have few or no symptoms at all, while others have significant disabilities that require extensive care and specialized accommodations.
