Treacher Collins Syndrome, also known as Franceschetti syndrome, is a rare congenital disorder characterized by facial abnormalities. Named after the English surgeon Edward Treacher Collins, who first described the condition in 1900, this syndrome affects approximately 1 in 50,000 individuals worldwide.
Males and females are equally at risk and an affected parent has a 50% of passing the affected gene onto each child.
Treacher Collins manifests through a wide range of physical, psychological, and social challenges for those affected, making it crucial to understand its causes, symptoms, and available treatments.
