Abstract

Craniosynostosis is the premature fusion of the skull sutures. The resulting asymmetric calvarial growth causes characteristic cranial deformities. The clinical outcome varies between minor cosmetic deformity and dental malocclusion to severe head growth restriction with mental retardation and cranial palsies [1, 2].
