Acrocephalosyndactylia (or acrocephalosyndactyly) is the common presentation of craniosynostosis and syndactyly.[1]


It has several different types:

A related term, "acrocephalopolysyndactyly" (ACPS), refers to the inclusion of polydactyly to the presentation. It also has multiple types:

  • type 1 - Noack syndrome; now classified with Pfeiffer syndrome[7]
  • type 2 - Carpenter syndrome[8]
  • type 3 - Sakati-Nyhan-Tisdale syndrome [9]
  • type 4 - Goodman syndrome;[10][11] now classified with Carpenter syndrome[12]
  • type 5 - Pfeiffer syndrome

It has been suggested that the distinction between "acrocephalosyndactyly" versus "acrocephalopolysyndactyly" should be abandoned.[13]
