Acrocephalosyndactyly (Apert syndrome) is a rare craniosynostotic syndrome characterized by acrocephaly, syndactyly of the hands and feet, and - occasionally - conductive hearing loss. We report three cases of conductive hearing loss in Apert syndrome. One patient was found to have bilateral stapes fixation. His daughter (the second case) had chronic bilateral otitis media with effusion. The third case involved a fixed incus and hypomobile stapes. The management of these patients and a review of the literature are presented.
