Inherited Disorder: Treacher Collins Syndrome, or mandibulofacial dysostosis is an inherited craniofacial disorder with a distinct set of characteristics. These characteristics include hypoplasia (underdevelopment) of the facial bones, clefting of the palate, ear anomalies and eye problems. While there is no "cure," there are craniofacial teams that can help patients surgically with the syndrome.
