A boy aged 4 years and 2 months was found to have delayed language and motor development, instability of gait, poor eye contact, stereotyped behavior, and seizure at the age of 3 years. Physical examination showed special facial features, including plagiocephaly, blepharoptosis, wide nasal bridge, down-turned mouth corners at both sides, and low-set ears. There were only two knuckles at the little finger of the left hand. The anteroposterior and lateral films of the spine showed scoliosis; echocardiography showed ventricular septal defect; the Gesell Developmental Scale showed delayed language development and moderate intellectual disability; there were no abnormalities in the karyotype; genome-wide SNP arrays found a duplication in 12q24...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the possible causes of plagiocephaly in infants and the therapeutic effect of postural correction training on plagiocephaly. METHODS: A total of 101 infants who were diagnosed with plagiocephaly were enrolled. According to the age at diagnosis, these infants were divided into 1-4 month group (31 infants), 5-8 month group (40 infants), and 9-12 month group (30 infants). The possible causes of plagiocephaly were analyzed in three groups. The cranial vault asymmetry index (CVAI) before and after postural correction training was compared in three groups...

BACKGROUND: The necessity of imaging for patients with craniosynostosis is controversial. Lambdoid synostosis is known to be associated with additional anomalies, but the role of imaging in this setting has not been established. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of preoperative imaging on intraoperative and postoperative management among patients undergoing operative intervention for lambdoid craniosynostosis. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients undergoing cranial vault remodeling for lambdoid craniosynostosis between January 2006 and 2014 was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Deformational plagiocephaly (DP) refers to cranial asymmetry resulting from uneven external forces. A strong association exists between DP and developmental delay. We investigated the effect of DP severity on developmental delay. METHODS: Between 2010 and 2016, data from 155 patients with DP were reviewed retrospectively. Two indices were used to evaluate the deformation quantitatively: cranial index (CI) and cranial vault asymmetry index (CVAI). The Bayley Scales of Infant Development-II was used to evaluate the neurodevelopment of patients...

PURPOSE: The effect of synostosis is not confined to the immediate vicinity of the suture. The authors hypothesized metopic craniosynostosis results in migration of lateral structures from midline, and differences in segmental volume of the cranial fossa. METHODS: A retrospective case-controlled cohort analysis of patients with nonsyndromic metopic craniosynostosis was performed. Craniometric angles, distances to landmarks from midline, cephalic index, and segmented volume ratios were calculated...

INTRODUCTION: Since 2007, we have examined in our medical practice children with cranial deformities. The increasing demand and lack of professionals dedicated to it has forced us to assume the treatment of this disease. We present our experience. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective study of patients with cranial deformities treated from 2010 to 2015. We collected data as age at the first visit and at discharge, sequential measurements of the skull and cranial index, type of treatment prescribed (postural, orthosis or both) and consultation requested to other specialties...

BACKGROUND: Especially in the first 6 months of life, skull deformities manifesting as a uni- or bilateral flattening of the occiput often give rise to questions of differential diagnosis and potential treatment. In this review, the authors summarize the current understanding of risk factors for this condition, and the current state of the relevant diagnostic assessment and options for treatment. METHODS: The recommendations given in this selective review of the literature are based on current studies and on existing guidelines on the prevention of sudden infant death, the recommendations of the German Society for Pediatric Neurology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Neuropädiatrie), and the American guidelines on the treatment of positional plagiocephaly in infancy...

PURPOSE: Analysis of symmetry represents an essential aspect of plastic-reconstructive surgery. For cases in which reference points are either not fixed or are changed due to corrective intervention the determination of a symmetry axis is sometimes almost impossible and a pre-defined symmetry axis would not always be helpful. To assess cranial shape of surgical patients with craniosynostosis, a new algebraic approach was chosen in which deviation from the optimal symmetry axis could be quantified...

AIMS: The link between deformational plagiocephaly and psychomotor development is a recurrent question in medical publications. Main publications concentrate on term infants, but there is a lack of data on the impact of deformational plagiocephaly on the long-term neurodevelopment of premature infants. We attempted to establish a possible relation between deformational plagiocephaly during the 1st year of life and the psychomotor score at 4 years in prematurely born infants. Other risk factors potentially impacting the psychomotor score were also studied...

BACKGROUND: Only a few studies investigating the optimal time point at which to start orthotic treatment for deformational plagiocephaly take into account the severity of skull asymmetry. The present study performs a three-dimensional analysis of the effects of age and severity of asymmetry on the final outcome. METHODS: A total of 144 patients with deformational plagiocephaly treated by molding orthosis were examined and divided into three age groups (group I, <24 weeks; group II, ≥24 to <32 weeks; and group III, ≥32 weeks) and two severity levels (mild to moderate, 30-degree cranial vault asymmetry ≥3 mm to ≤12 mm; and moderate to severe, 30-degree cranial vault asymmetry >12 mm)...

The capacity for cranial remodelling is known to be better at younger ages. The timing of cranioplasty could affect the axis of the skull base. We investigated whether age at the time of distraction is related to the outcome of endocranial morphology correction. In this retrospective study, we investigated the surgical outcome of 14 patients with unilateral craniosynostotic plagiocephaly who underwent one-piece fronto-orbital advancement without bandeau by using a distraction technique between April 2005 and December 2015...

The standard surgical treatment for unilateral coronal synostosis is fronoto-orbital advancement. The technique is known for its high recurrence rate and established plagiocephaly remains a challenge. In this case report, the management of a 5-year-old with unicoronal plagiocephaly correction with fronto-orbital bone remodeling and advancement is presented. The previous surgery done at 6 months of age resulted in failure with establishment of hypertelorism and sudden progressive diminishing vision. Furthermore, temporal hallowing was evident in the imaging technique...

BACKGROUND: Positional skull deformities (PSD) are becoming a daily health concern for craniofacial surgeons. Several reports have indicated that cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) space increases on computed tomography (CT) scans of infants suffering from PSD, suggesting a potential causal link. Here, we describe a semi-automatic method to estimate total brain and CSF volumes quantitatively. We tested the potential correlation between total CSF volume and the occurrence of PSD. METHODS: A single-center retrospective study was carried out using 79 CT scans of PSD and 60 CT scans of control subjects...

BACKGROUND: It is known that type I collagenopathy has a broad-spectrum phenotypic variability. Here, we report a case of a Korean girl with a heterozygous COL1A1 mutation who had an atypical presentation. CASE PRESENTATION: A 26-month-old girl presented with delayed motor development and failure to thrive. She had severe growth retardation. She exhibited right-sided plagiocephaly, blue sclerae, and facial dysmorphism, including a small pointed chin, frontal bossing, and a triangular face, but had microcephaly...

OBJECTIVE: Various measurements are used to quantify cranial asymmetry in deformational plagiocephaly (DP), but studies validating cut-off values and comparing the accuracy of such measurements are lacking. In this study, we compared the accuracy of four different measurements in classifying children with and without DP diagnosed by visual assessment, and sought to determine their optimal cut-off values. STUDY DESIGN: Two experts rated 407 3D craniofacial images of children aged between 3 and 36 months old using the Argenta classification...
