Abstract

Craniosynostosis is a condition of one or more of the fibrous sutures in an infant skull prematurely fuses by turning into bone (ossification).1 Premature fusion of cranial sutures may have an effect on cranial shape an less frequently on brain growth.2 There is a changing in the growth pattern of the skull and the skull can’t expand perpendicular to the fused suture, craniosynostosis can lead to abnormal head shape and abnormal facial features and results in increased intracranial pressure leading possibly to visual difficulty, sleeping impairment, eating problem, or impaired mental status with a significant reduction in IQ.

Keywords: Preterm labor, IUGR, Hydrocephalus, Fetal anomalies, Increase intracranial pressure.
