Welcome to the Treacher Collins Syndrome Support Network!
Treacher Collins Syndrome (TCS) is a genetic craniofacial syndrome that is characterized by a range of distinctive facial anomalies. The main characteristics of TCS are downward slanting eyes, small lower jaw, and malformed or missing ears. These anomalies cause hearing, breathing, and nutrition problems. Individuals and families also struggle with the psychological aspects of having a facial difference. About one in every 10,000 babies is born with TCS.
Our organization and programs exist to serve the Treacher Collins community of patients and families.
Learn more about Treacher Collins Syndrome, treatment of the various conditions associated with TCS, where to find a qualified craniofacial team, medical financing options, community resources and more.
