    What is Pfeiffer Syndrome?

    Pfeiffer Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder which causes bones to fuse prematurely or extra bones to grow in different parts of the body, including the skull.  There are three forms of Pfeiffer Syndrome, based on severity.  Type I, considered mild, does not typically impact mental capacity.  Types II and III often involve problems with the nervous system and can cause damage leading to a decreased life expectancy.
