Author information

  • 1Department of Human Genetics, University of Würzburg, Würzburg , Germany.


Non-syndromic trigonocephaly is a heterogeneous entity; in most cases the origin is unknown. Rare cases with autosomal dominant and recessive inheritance exist. Here the mutational screening of ten patients in the FGFR1, 2, and 3 genes and the TWIST gene causative of autosomal dominant craniosynostosis syndromes was reported. In one girl an unusual FGFR1 mutation was found.
