The Pierre Robin Syndrome is a congenital condition which causes certain deformities in the face – a small jaw bone placed far back on the throat, a cleft palate, and a tongue which tends to fall back and obstruct the airway. Babies with the Pierre Robin syndrome have recurrent ear infections and problems feeding and sleeping.
