We report here a newborn male infant with striking features consistent with severe Pfeiffer syndrome type II, including cloverleaf skull deformity with pansynostosis, extreme proptosis, upper extremity contractures, broad big toes and thumbs with varus deviation and genetic mutation in the FGFR2 gene.
