Abstract

Premature fusion of one or other of the minor sutures can subtly influence the shape of the human skull. Although infrequently reported or not clinically recognized, it can such contribute to a variety of craniofacial dysmorphisms. We herein report a case of late presenting, isolated bilateral synostosis of the squamosal suture dysmorphologies whose presentation mimics aspects of sagittal synostosis.
