Is there any treatment for Parry-Romberg syndrome?
There is no cure and there are no treatments that can stop the progression of
Parry-Romberg syndrome. Reconstructive or microvascular surgery may be needed to
repair wasted tissue. The timing of surgical intervention is generally agreed to
be the best following exhaustion of the disease course and completion of facial
growth. Most surgeons will recommend a waiting period of one or two years before
proceeding with reconstruction. Muscle or bone grafts may also be helpful. Other
treatment is symptomatic and supportive.
