Crouzon Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder resulting from a mutation of the Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor 2 Gene. The main presenting feature of this syndrome is craniofacial synostosis but multiple physical dysmorphic features have been reported. There is a dearth of literature detailing the presentation of this syndrome in the foot and lower limb. Therefore, this case report will describe the clinical characteristics of a 22 year old female referred for podiatric assessment. It will also explore the possible treatment options considered for this case.
