Parry-Romberg Syndromeg

Also known as progressive hemifacial atrophy, this rare illness (affecting 1 out of 700,000 people) is caused by an atrophy of the bones or soft tissues of the face, generally of a part of the face or head, but without facial weakening. It is an auto-immune illness in which body attacks its own skin, blood vessels, muscles and internal organs.

The recommended treatment is a reconstruction via plastic surgery, of the affected muscles, bones and tissues. It may be combined with treatment with stem cells.

In some cases, it only results in a loss of volume in the face, while in more complex cases, the atrophy also affects bone, nose and eyebrow areas. In this latter case, 2 or more surgical interventions may be needed for complete correction.
