Parry Romberg Syndrome Pictures?

An 11-year-old girl named Christine Honeycutt that suffered from Parry-Romberg syndrome was cured after a surgery.

Parry Romberg syndrome is a disease which causes half of your face to age faster.
I have seen pictures of the girl who suffered with Parry Romberg syndrome and half her face looked really deteriorated.

What are the details of the Parry Romberg syndrome? Where can I find pictures of patients with the disease?

Parry Romberg Syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by slowly progressive deterioration (atrophy) of the skin and soft tissues of half of the face.
Parry Romberg Syndrome is an autoimmune disease, which means the immune system attacks your body because it can't differentiate between healthy body tissue and antigens.

The syndrome is very rare, it only happens to one in a million patients and females are more at risk than men.

There is no cure for Parry Rombery Syndrome, but a recent surgery has proven very successful in treating it.
