Treatment

Is there a treatment(s) for Saethre-Chotzen Syndrome?

The primary treatments for Saethre-Chotzen syndrome include treating the symptoms of the disease. The way the disease is managed will be different for each team that deals with Saethre-Chotzen syndrome. In general, most individuals with this disease have skull surgery to separate their skull bones before they are a year old. This treatment helps prevent pressure on the brain as it grows. Other facial surgeries may be needed if there are problems with teeth, swallowing, or breathing, or if an individual has an opening in the lip or roof of the mouth called a cleft. Speak with your doctor to determine the treatment plan for you or your family member.

As other symptoms arise from the disease, an individual may need to see a specialist for care and treatment of their eyes (ophthalmologist), ears (otologist), or teeth (orthodontist).
