Carey-fineman-ziter Syndrome; Cfzs
Carey-Fineman-Ziter syndrome (CFZS) is a multisystem congenital disorder characterized by hypotonia, Moebius sequence (bilateral congenital facial palsy with impairment of ocular abduction), Pierre Robin complex (micrognathia, glossoptosis, and high-arched or cleft palate), delayed motor milestones, and failure to thrive. More variable features include dysmorphic facial features, brain abnormalities, and intellectual disability. It has been postulated that many clinical features in CFZS may be secondary effects of muscle weakness during development or brainstem anomalies (summary by Pasetti et al., 2016).Di Gioia et al. (2017) determined that CFZS represents a slowly progressive congenital myopathy resulting from a defect in myoblast fusion.
