Product Description

Skull deformities are a very common reason for referral to pediatric neurosurgery.Premature fusion of cranial suture closure is called craniosynostosis.

Incidence and Aetiology :
Isolated craniosynsostosis occurs due to the premature fusion of a single suture or multiple sutures. The overall prevalence of craniosynostosis is around 1 in 2500 live births, with ranges of 1 in 709 to 1 in 3225 of births. The wide variation seen is due to differences in the various criteria under which one labels craniosynsostosis. Isolated craniosynostosis is far more common than multiple ‘syndromic’ synostosis.Sagittal seems to be commonest, followed by coronal and metopic. True lambdoid synostosis appears rare and is difficult to distinguish from deformational posterior asymmetry, which is considered to be because of positional molding of the cranium.

Common Syndromic Craniosynostosis like Apert and Crouzon have prevalence of about 1 in 65000, each about 4-6 per cent of all craniosynostosis. There is evidence of FGFR2 mutation in Apert Syndrome, FGFR3 in Crouzon syndrome and FGFR1 in Pfeiffer syndrome. Almost all Aperts and about 50 per cent of Crouzons arise de novo and there is a correlation with increase in paternal age. The prevalence of Pfeiffer syndrome is lower than others but there is no definite percentage data.

Apart from this there are rarer types of single gene syndromes associated with other malformations, metabolic storage disorders and learning disabilities.There are chromosomal aberrations of which craniosynostosis may be a feature. There are teratogenic causes associated with anticonvulsants, (Valproate, Hydantoin)cytotoxic agents, (Methotraxate, Cyclophosphomide, Cytarabine) abortifacients, and nitrosatable drugs(Chlorpneramine,Nitrofurantoin, Chlordiazepoxide and Fluconazole).

Classification and Terminology
Over the years, the nomenclature for various craniofacial deformities has remained constant, but with the entry of molecular genetics, there have been additional terms given to the complex multi sutural synostosis. However, in simple terms these deformities can be classified into three different varieties.



Simple, Complex and Secondary:
The Simple anomalies include single suture or two suture involvement and are named as
  1. Sagittal synostosis or Scaphocephaly or Dolichocephaly, is so called when the sagittal suture is singularly prematurely fused and the head attains a longish anteroposterior length with or without frontal bossing.
  2. Unicoronal synostosis [Anterior-Plagiocephaly] when there is flattening of one side of the forehead and a mild facial scoliosis, due to premature fusion of one coronal suture.
  3. Metopic synostosis or Trigonocephaly, when there is premature fusion of the metopic suture, and the forehead assumes a triangular shape like the keel of a boat.
  4. Lambdoid synostosis [Posterior Plagiocephaly] when a single lambdoid suture fuses to produce asymmetric occipital flattening.
  5. Bicoronal synostosis or Brachycephaly, where both coronal sutures fuse prematurely and the skull assume spherical shape.
  6. Acrocephaly or Turricephaly or Oxycephaly , where both coronals and anterior Sagittal sutures fuse and the skull assumes a pointed tower like shape.
