It affects both males and females equally and may appear as the first time in a family, or be passed down from generation to generation. Intelligence and life expectancy are typically normal. Babies born with Jackson-Weiss Syndrome have a skull that fuses together too early, called craniosynostosis. This causes a bulging forehead, misshapen skull, widely spaced eyes, and a very flat middle section of the face.
Foot deformities are common in those who have Jackson-Weiss Syndrome and may include:
- Wide, short, big toes.
- Big toe bends away from other toes.
- Bones of some toes may be fused together.
- Webbing of toes.
