Pediatric Craniofacial Anomalies

Craniofacial anomalies (CFA) are a diverse group of deformities in the growth of the head and facial bones.

Anomaly is a medical term meaning "irregularity" or "different from normal." These abnormalities are congenital (present at birth) and there are numerous variations — some are mild and some are severe and require surgery.
