What could a high, arched palate be a sign of other than marfan's syndrome?

What could a high, arched palate be a sign of other than marfan's syndrome?

Sometimes normal: Normal people sometimes have a high-arched palate. One should not worry about marfan syndrome unless one has several of the physical appearance features (then a doctor's evaluation should be obtained).

I have a 15 days old female baby with high arched palate. Pls suggest me is this will effect in her talking poer in future?Is this have any risk? How

Too early to tell: There is so much growing that your baby will do in the future that it is really impossible to tell how the palate could change in the future.. Some people have a naturally high deep palatal vault, and others not so much. I would not consider this abnormal, but recommend a pediatrician examine her if you are concerned. ...Read more
