Craniosynostosis

CT reveals a normal right coronal suture, with bony bridging of the suture on the left. The result is an abnormal shape to the skull, which is asymmetrical, and termed plagiocephaly (which can involve either the coronal suture, as in this patient, or the lambdoid suture). No gross structural abnormalities are noted involving the brain. (Case provided courtesy of Ianina Scheer, MD, Head of Neuroradiology, University Children’s Hospital, Zürich.)
