      Craniosynostosis, or simply synostosis, is the early growing together (or fusion) of two or more bones of the skull. A newborn's skull is made up of many separate bones that are not yet fused together. Because the brain grows quickly in the first two years of life, it is important that the skull bones remain open. Craniosynostosis: Craniosynostosis means fused bones of the skull. It is a condition that some children are born with or later develop. To better understand craniosynostosis, it is helpful to know that our skulls are not made up of one single “bowl” of bone. Instead, different bones that fit together like a jigsaw puzzle make up the skull.

      Craniosynostosis describes the premature fusion of one or more of the cranial sutures: secondary distortion of skull shape occurs because of a combination of lack of growth perpendicular to the fused suture, and compensatory overgrowth at the non-fused sutures. The parents should be assessed similarly for signs suggestive of a carrier state.   Craniosynostosis & Plagiocephaly Support Group. Craniosynostosis is a medical condition in which some or all of the sutures in the skull of an infant close too early, causing problems with normal brain and skull growth. Plagiocephaly is a condition characterized by an asymmetrical distortion (flattening of one side) of the skull.

    Craniosynostosis causes the head shape to be deformed, and in certain instances, can prevent the brain from having enough room to grow. The specific abnormality of the head shape depends on which suture(s) is closed. An abnormal head shape is noticed after birth. Craniosynostosis occurs in about 1 in every live births. Early surgery can help to remodel the bones of the skull, leading to a more typical skull shape. Children with craniosynostosis are often followed by a multidisciplinary craniofacial team, such as the one at the Hospital for Sick Children, to address their individual medical needs.

However, identifying a syndrome is important as it can impact the medical management of a child.

Craniosynostosis is a common craniofacial condition that can affect 1 in people.

It can be divided into single-suture, multi-suture and syndromic. 1. Nonsyndromic craniosynostosis. This is the most common type of craniosynostosis and the cause of the condition is unknown. However, doctors and medical scientists believe that genetics and environmental factors may have an effect on how the sutures in the skull develop in utero.
