PurposeWe report here a newborn male infant with striking features consistent with severe Pfeiffer syndrome type II, including cloverleaf skull deformity with pansynostosis, extreme proptosis, upper extremity contractures, broad big toes and thumbs with varus deviation and genetic mutation in the FGFR2 gene. The authors review the ophthalmic complications in Pfeiffer syndrome and discuss the unique surgical strategies used for obtaining adequate corneal coverage in these unique patients.ObservationsOphthalmic considerations in Type 2 Pfeiffer Syndrome include vision loss secondary to increased intracranial pressure, and extreme proptosis as a result of orbitostenosis and midfacial retrusion. Our patient has undergone multiple ophthalmic/oculoplastic, neurosurgical, and midfacial surgeries as a result of corneal deterioration due to extreme exorbitism.Conclusions and importanceIt is important for ophthalmologists to be aware of the ophthalmic complications associated with patients with craniosynostosis syndromes. Our case identifies the importance of close communication between ophthalmology and plastic reconstructive surgery to help formulate the most successful plan in treating corneal decompensation and proptosis in Pfeiffer Syndrome patients.
