Apert syndrome is an uncommon congenital disorder characterized by malformation of the skull in association with symmetrical syndactyly of both hands and feet. This syndrome is autosomal dominant. The original description was presented by Apert in 1906. Since then more than 200 cases have been reported in the world. Recently, we experienced a case of newhorn male infant with congenital anomalies of the skull and extremities. Molecular biologically, he was found to have Ser252Try mutation in the FGFR2 exonⅢa. A brief review of literature was made.
Key Words: Apert Syndrome, Acrocephalosyndactyly, Fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 gene(FGFR2)
