Craniosynostosis is a birth defect that occurs when one or more growth plates in the skull have fused abnormally. This causes an irregular head shape, where your baby’s skull may appear long, triangular or asymmetric. The size of the eyes and the position of the ears may also be affected. Most importantly, early closure of the growth plates of the skull can cause increased pressure on the brain, which can lead to developmental delay and permanent brain damage. Surgery is usually performed to prevent these problems from occurring.
