Medical Definition of Apert syndrome
Note: Most cases of Apert syndrome result from a spontaneous mutation in which the defective gene is not present in either parent. In rare cases, the syndrome may be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait, requiring that one parent pass on a copy of the defective gene on a chromosome other than a sex chromosome.— see acrocephalosyndactyly
