Recurrence of Exophthalmos After Midface Advancement in Children
Since 1979 we have performed midf ace advancement in six patients with Crouzon’s disease. Follow-ups of more than 4 years have been possible in three patients who were operated on at the ages of 4, 4, and 22 years. A good improvement was obtained in all three cases in the early stages, but this did not continue. We present two patients aged 4 in whom exophthalmos again became pronounced in the second postoperative year.
