VEGA GUTIERREZ, M. L.  and  ALIA ARROYO, I.. Sagittal craniosynostosis: A case report. Rev Pediatr Aten Primaria [online]. 2012, vol.14, n.54, pp.149-152. ISSN 1139-7632.

Craniosynostosis is premature fusion of one or more of the cranial sutures. It includes a wide spectrum of cranial malformations, from closing of an isolated suture to the closing of several sutures, or associated to other malformations, constituting syndromic craniosynostosis. The pediatrician must distinguish the positional deformities or postural plagiocephaly, more frequent, of the craniosynostosis, which need surgical treatment and which precocious diagnosis improves the prediction. We present a case of an infant with scafocephaly due to isolated craniosynostosis.

Keywords : Scafocephaly; Craniosynostosis; Plagiocephaly.
