Information About Pierre Robin Syndrome

Pierre Robin syndrome is a condition present at birth, in which the infant has a smaller than normal lower jaw, a tongue that falls back in the throat, and difficulty breathing. Symptoms include cleft soft palate; high-arched palate; small jaw with receding chin; jaw placed unusually far back in the throat; large-appearing tongue; natal teeth (teeth appearing when the baby is born); recurrent ear infections; and small opening in the roof of the mouth, which causes choking.
