Different types of Craniosynostosis

Metopic Suture Craniosynostosis

Metopic Suture Synostosis affects the middle area of a baby’s forehead, and extends from the soft spot to the root of the nose. Both frontal lobes expand forward and sideways, and the eye socket will move to either side resulting in eyes lying closely together. When early closure occurs it can result in the baby developing an upwards bump, or midline ridge, and the forehead will slant backwards giving the forehead a triangular appearance when viewed from above. The back of the head will then protrude, due to the brain growing in that particular direction.
