Marshall syndrome can cause some abnormal features in the face. It also can cause periodic fevers, loss of hearing, eye abnormalities and many more abnormal features.
Marshall syndrome is a very rare birth defect. This disorder occurs in 1 and every 2000 births. This disorder is an autosomal dominant pattern that equally affects males and females. It is caused by an abnormality in collagen, which is a key part of connective tissue. As you can see above there are pictures of children with their eyes too far apart, an abnormal mouth, or maybe even something different inside their mouth.
