    Stickler syndrome is a group of hereditary conditions characterized by a distinctive facial appearance, eye abnormalities, hearing loss, and joint problems. A particular group of physical features, called Pierre Robin sequence, is also common in people with Stickler syndrome. Robin sequence includes an opening in the roof of the mouth, a tongue that is placed further back than normal, and a small lower jaw. This combination of features can lead to feeding problems and difficulty breathing. There are three variants of Stickler syndrome identified, each associated with a collagen biosynthesis gene.
