Pierre Robin Syndrome

What is Pierre Robin Syndrome?

Pierre Robin Syndrome is a congenital condition named after the French physician who identified its main characteristics. One symptom of this condition is an abnormally small lower jaw (micrognathia) with receding chin. Another feature is a displaced tongue, usually falling backwards into the throat (glossoptosis). The tongue often appears large relative to the jaw. In 80% of the cases of this condition, the children also have a U-shaped opening in the roof of their mouths (cleft soft palate). Others may have a high arched palate.
