PMID:  10606949     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Apert's syndrome is a congenital disorder characterized by the premature fusion of the cranial sutures and early epiphyseal closure. Severe pustular acne is a common feature. We report a case that failed to respond to conventional antibiotic treatment but resolved following isotretinoin therapy. The patient's permanent tracheostomy proved a management challenge during isotretinoin treatment. The role of androgen-sensitivity is discussed in relation to the skin and bones.
