Clinical Information
  • A congenital disorder characterized by earlier than normal closure of some or all sutures of the infant skull.
  • Premature closing of the lambdoid and coronal sutures.
  • Premature closure of one or more cranial sutures. It often results in plagiocephaly. Craniosynostoses that involve multiple sutures are sometimes associated with congenital syndromes such as acrocephalosyndactylia; and craniofacial dysostosis.
  • Premature closure of one or more sutures of the skull.
  • Premature fusion of the metopic suture.
