All genes associated with craniosynostosis
Craniosynostosis is defined as congenital malformation in which one or more cranial sutures of newborn or infant are closed abnormally, prematurely.
Depending on the suture closes early distinguished:
• Scaphocephaly (sagittal suture): long, narrow skull. It is the most frequent (60%)
• Brachycephaly (both coronal sutures): (20%) short, broad skull, with prominent forehead.
• Plagiocephaly (coronal suture or lambdoid): asymmetrical skull.
• Trigonocephaly (metopic): Front narrow and triangular, hypotelorism.
• Oxycephaly or turricephaly (coronal and sagittal sutures): narrow and very high skull.
