Doreen Crawford Nurse adviser, Nursing Children and Young People

The genetic condition Pfeiffer syndrome is thought to occur once in every 100,000 people. There is a trajectory of severity, with some children having barely perceptible markers for the syndrome, but others being severely affected. The children of an individual with the syndrome have a 50% chance of being affected.
