Pierre Robin syndrome is a congenital condition that results in a sequence of developmental malformations, also known as Robin Sequence. The three main features are cleft palate, micrognathia (an undersized jaw) and glossoptosis (downward displacement of the tongue). The upper airway obstruction caused by these malformations can result in respiratory and feeding problems of varying severity. There are still many controversies regarding the definition, pathogenesis and management of Robin Sequence, and with her research Hanneke Basart aims to take a first step in resolving the differences of opinion between physicians, stressing the need for an internationally accepted definition for the condition, using strict and objective criteria.
