mortality/aging
• all die within 24 hours of birth

craniofacial
• skull is rounded in appearance
• enlargement of the sutural (Wormian) bone in the frontal (metopic) suture
• results from the absence of medial portions of the frontal bones
• frontal bone is more rounded and medial portions are absent resulting in an enlarged anterior fontanelle
• display a small region of overlapping parietal bones
• the alveolar processes of the maxilla and the mandible are absent
• the incisor tooth buds in the mandible are absent
• the upper incisors of the maxilla are absent
• first and second molar teeth are profoundly retarded at the tooth bud stage
• exhibit foreshortening of the distal tooth-bearing mandible and an abnormal lower border and anterior segment, including the symphysis menti
• mandible is reduced in length by 5%
• nasal bones are smaller and more rectangular
• malleus is reduced in height
• palatal shelves at E14.75 are properly elevated but have not fused with each other or with the nasal septum
• complete cleft of the secondary palate

hearing/vestibular/ear
• malleus is reduced in height

homeostasis/metabolism
• newborns become cyanotic prior to death

respiratory system
• nasal bones are smaller and more rectangular
• newborns exhibit gasping respirations prior to death

behavior/neurological
• stomachs are devoid or milk and are distended with air

skeleton
• skull is rounded in appearance
• enlargement of the sutural (Wormian) bone in the frontal (metopic) suture

• mandible is reduced in length by 5%
• nasal bones are smaller and more rectangular
• malleus is reduced in height

digestive/alimentary system
• palatal shelves at E14.75 are properly elevated but have not fused with each other or with the nasal septum
• complete cleft of the secondary palate

growth/size/body
• the alveolar processes of the maxilla and the mandible are absent
