TX/Constitutional/No definitive treatment

A syndrome characterized by slowly progressive unilateral atrophy of facial subcutaneous fat, muscle tissue, skin, cartilage, and bone; The condition typically progresses over a period of 2-10 years and then stabilizes; Parry Romberg Syndrome; HFA; PRS; Progressive Facial Hemiatrophy;

Progressive Hemifacial Atrophy; Romberg Syndrome;

Parry-Romberg syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by slowly progressive degeneration (atrophy) of the soft tissues of half of the face (hemifacial atrophy); Some individuals may experience distinctive changes of the eyes and hair; and neurological abnormalities including episodes of uncontrolled electrical disturbances in the brain (seizures) and episodes of severe pain in tissues supplied by the fifth cranial nerve (trigeminal nerve) including the mouth, cheek, nose, and/or other facial tissues (trigeminal neuralgia); Symptoms and physical findings associated with Parry-Romberg syndrome usually become apparent during the first or early during the second decade of life;
