Treacher Collins syndrome (TCS) or Franceschetti syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder of craniofacial development with variable expressivity. It is named after E. Treacher Collins who described the essential components of the condition in 1900. The incidence of this syndrome is approximately 1 in 50,000 live births, and it affects both genders equally. It affects structures, which are derivatives of the first and second brachial arches. The most common manifestations of TCS are the antimongoloid slanting of the palpebral fissures, colobomas of the lower eyelid, hypoplasia of zygoma and mandible; and a variety of ear abnormalities.
