Because Crouzon syndrome is the result of a rare genetic mutation, there’s no way to prevent the condition. But a parent with Crouzon syndrome can avoid passing on the condition by using a combination of in vitro fertilization and genetic testing of the embryos they use.

Nothing you did before or after pregnancy caused it. If you plan on becoming pregnant, you can talk with your healthcare provider about genetic testing, especially if you have Crouzon syndrome or a family history of the condition. Genetic testing can assess your risk of having a baby with a genetic condition.
