Cranosynostosis is premature fusion of the cranial sutures (the fibrous joints between the bones of the skull) in an infant, preventing normal growth of the baby’s head. This is a common condition that is subdivided into scaphocephaly, trigonocephaly, brachycephaly, plagiocephaly, oxycephaly, and turricephaly. Complex premature suture fusion is associated with Apert, Crouzon, Kleeblattschädel, Pfeiffer, Saethre-Chotzen and Carpenter syndromes.
