Craniofacial Microsomia

Completed & Harmonized

The ICHOM Standard Set for Craniofacial microsomia is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts and patients. It is our recommendation of the outcomes that matter most to persons with Craniofacial microsomia. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.

  1. Recommended to track via Paediatric Sleep Questionnaire (PSQ) and polysomnography.
  2. Recommended to track via the Intelligibility in Context Scale (ICS), Percentage of Consonants Correct (PCC), and CleftQ Speech and Feelings about Speaking Scale, and audiogram.
  3. Includes dentition, oral symptoms, mastication and occlusion. Recommended to track via DMFT, COHIP Oral Symptoms Scale, CleftQ Eating and Drinking Scale, and Cephalometrics.
  4. Includes facial profile, asymmetry, smile, ears, eyes and jaw. Recommended to track via PAT-CFM, CleftQ Appearance Scale, and Ear HrQoL tool.
  5. Includes psychometrics, sociometrics, anxiety and depression, health-related QoL, and family stress.
