What is Brachycephaly?

Description of the condition

Brachycephaly is a condition in humans or animals characterized by a short, round, and wide skull. In animals, this condition can lead to breathing problems, while in humans it can cause various health complications.

  • Pug


  • Difficulty breathing
  • Heat regulation problems
  • Digestive problems


Brachycephaly in animals is often the result of breeding for specific traits, while in humans it can be due to genetics or other medical reasons.


Diagnosis includes clinical examination, radiography, and computer tomography. In the case of brachycephaly in animals, extensive medical evaluation may be required to assess breathing problems.


Treatment may include surgical correction to alleviate breathing problems, and in animals, a special diet or specific housing conditions may be necessary.


Prevention includes responsible breeding of animals, selecting breeding partners based on past medical history, and genetic counseling for humans.


Treatment of brachycephaly in humans may be carried out by genetics specialists, while in animals, veterinarians with experience in short-skull breeds may be consulted.
