Understanding Apert Syndrome

Apert syndrome is a condition in which babies’ skulls form prematurely in the womb, causing the brain to develop irregularly and resulting in a number of medical issues.┬áBabies who are born with this congenital defect often have unusual facial features caused by the skull placing unusual pressure on the features as they develop.

Babies who suffer from apert syndrome will often have an unusually high or prominent forehead. Other signs of the defect include sunken features in the middle of the face as well as eyes that are unusually big and set apart. While there is no treatment for apert syndrome, babies may undergo expensive surgical procedures which may be able to correct some of these facial defects.

Apert syndrome is one of several birth defects that has been linked to mothers taking a drug called Depakote while pregnant. Often, babies who are born with apert syndrome also suffer from other congenital defects that affect other areas of the body. These issues can require expensive medical and rehabilitative care that the attorneys at Williams Hart believe should be covered by negligent pharmaceutical companies.
