WHAT IS METOPIC CRANIOSYNOSTOSIS?
Craniosynostosis is a birth defect in which one or more sutures of the baby’s skull fuse too early, limiting or slowing the growth of the brain. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 in 2,500 babies are born with craniosynostosis in the U.S. The type of craniosynostosis depends on the fused suture(s). This model represents the skull of a 7 to 8 month-old metopic craniosynostosis patient. Out of the five types of craniosynostosis, metopic is the rarest.
