Since 1964, about 30 cases of Pfeiffer syndrome type 2 have been informed; this variant is characterized by cloverleaf skull, prominent forehead, severe ocular proptosis, severe central nervous system damage, elbow synostosis, and early death. Case report. A 5 years old male withouth antecedents of consanguinity, teratogenic exposure of his parents (of 19 years of age at the time of the bird of patient), or familial malformation, was admitted. On physical examination a cloverleaf skull, wide forehead, ocular proptosis (in 2 previous occasions the right eye exited), mid facial flattening, horizontal cross configuration of ear helix, widening of the first finger of hand and feet, and partial syndactyly of hands and feet were observed. A normal 46 XY cariotype, and a normal neural development were found. Discussion. We present a case of Pfeiffer syndrome type 2 without visceral complications and normal neurologic development.
