What Is Craniosynostosis?
Craniosynostosis occurs when one or more of the joints in a baby’s skull closes too early. The condition is sometimes noticeable at birth, but it also can be diagnosed as infants grow and develop. Children who have craniosynostosis might have an abnormal skull shape, an abnormal forehead shape, or asymmetrical eyes and/or ears.
Craniosynostosis is one of the most common physical deformities in infants, occurring in about one of every 2,000 births.
