In brief: The worst form

The features of the sufferers are severe cranial and facial deformities.
The ears may be very poorly developed or absent, also the nose. The eyelids are severely everted , which leaves the eyes and the area around them very susceptible to infection. They often bleed upon birth. The lips, pulled by the dry skin, are fixed into a wide grimace .Arms, feet, and fingers are almost always deformed
