Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome RCVS is a rare condition characterized by a sudden narrowing constriction of blood vessels that supply blood carrying oxygen and nutrients to the brain. The primary symptom of RCVS is a "thunderclap" headache - or a sudden, severe and disabling form of headache. Constricted blood vessels can be easily diagnosed by a catheter angiogram, although sometimes it can also be seen with magnetic resonance angiography MRA. Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction may or may not lead to a stroke.

Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome RCVS , sometimes called Call-Fleming syndrome is a disease characterized by a weeks-long course of thunderclap headaches , sometimes focal neurologic signs , and occasionally seizures. For the vast majority of patients, all symptoms disappear on their own within three weeks. This condition features the unique property that the patient's cerebral arteries can spontaneously constrict and relax back and forth over a period of time without intervention and without clinical findings. The direct cause of the symptoms is believed to be either constriction or dilation of blood vessels in the brain.

Oral-facial-digital syndrome is actually a group of related conditions that affect the development of the oral cavity the mouth and teeth , facial features, and digits fingers and toes. Researchers have identified at least 13 potential forms of oral-facial-digital syndrome. The different types are classified by their patterns of signs and symptoms. However, the features of the various types overlap significantly, and some types are not well defined. The classification system for oral-facial-digital syndrome continues to evolve as researchers find more affected individuals and learn more about this disorder.
Craniofacial disorders are abnormalities of the face or head, caused by a birth defect, disease or trauma. Directed by plastic surgeons, Mayo Clinic's Cleft and Craniofacial Clinic uses a multidisciplinary team approach in the treatment of all types of craniofacial disorders, including cleft lip and palate. Over a two-day period, the Cleft and Craniofacial Clinic team conducts a complete evaluation of your child's condition. The team members meet to discuss their findings and develop a treatment plan, tailored to your child's needs.
