Carpenter syndrome

Are certain behavioral characteristics associated with Carpenter syndrome?

Children who have syndromic craniosynostosis are at risk for developing behavioral and emotional problems. However, we are unaware of studies regarding behavioral characteristics of people with Carpenter syndrome specifically. It has been reported that people with craniosynostosis in general may continue to have cognitive, psychological, speech, and behavioral problems, even after surgery that allows for normal cranial growth and development. Children with craniofacial abnormalities may have stigmatizing conditions such as speech defects and facial differences, which are reportedly associated with negative psychosocial outcomes such as poor psychological adjustment.
