Brachycephaly

Case contributed by Dr Maxime St-Amant

Presentation

Abnormal head shape.

Patient Data

Age: 7 months
Gender: Female
Modality: CT

CT-scan shows bilateral coronal sutures synostosis. Lambdoid sutures aren't prematurely closed in this patient. However, the bi-parietal diameter to fronto-occipital diameter  ratio approaches the 95th centile, with a rounded head shaped. This is compatible with brachycephaly.
