Hands and feet in the Apert syndrome.
M M Cohen, S Kreiborg,
We studied 44 pairs of hands and 37 pairs of feet in Apert syndrome, utilizing clinical, dermatoglyphic, and radiographic methods. We also studied histologic sections of the hand from a 31-week stillborn fetus. Topic headings discussed include: clinical classification of syndactyly; correlations between types of hands and feet in the same patient; dermatoglyphics; anatomy of the hand; radiologic assessment; comparison with other studies; histologic assessment of the hand; acrocephalosyndactyly vs. acrocephalopolysyndactyly: a pseudodistinction; and some generalizations.

Intellectual development in Apert's syndrome: a long term follow up of 29 patients.
M A Patton, J Goodship, R Hayward, R Lansdown,
Twenty-nine patients with Apert's syndrome were ascertained through hospital records. The mean age was 19.3 years (range eight to 35 years). Further information was obtained on their intelligence, education, and employment records. Fourteen patients (48%) had a normal or borderline IQ (greater than 70), nine patients (31%) were mildly mentally retarded (IQ 50 to 70), four patients (14%) were moderately retarded (IQ 35 to 49), and two patients (7%) were severely retarded (IQ less than 35). Early craniectomy did not appear to improve intellectual outcome. Six of the seven school leavers with normal or borderline intelligence were in full time employment or vocational training.
