Craniofacial dysostosis refers to the syndromic forms of craniosynostosis, characterized by a sutural abnormality with cranial vault involvement that extends to the skull base and the middle third of face structures.
Clinical manifestations reports of SARS-CoV-2 in pregnant women are limited, therefore this manuscript objective is to report a clinical case of a newborn with craniofacial dysostosis associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection during pregnancy.
