Hallerrnann-Streiff syndrome is a congenital disorder invoMng glaucoma in both eyes, microphthalmia (smaller-than-normal eyesl, dwarfism, lower-than-normal amount of body hair, a characteristic "beak-shaped" nose, micrognathia

Of the 64 cases of malformations in topiramate-exposed pregnancies reported to the Food and Drug Administration's Adverse Event Reporting System (AERS), almost 33% (21 cases) were craniofacial abnormalities, which included 11 reports of cleft lip and/or palate reports, 6 reports of facial dysmorphism, 4 reports of micrognathia
, 3 cases of skull deformation and ossification abnormalities, and 1 case of macroglossia.
Particular anatomical abnormalities such as micrognathia
, acromegaly and macroglosssia make sleep apnoea more likely.

In this case, micrognathia
causes the tongue to be displaced superiorly during development, interfering with palatal closure at approximately 9 weeks gestation.
