BACKGROUND Deformational plagiocephaly (DP) refers to cranial asymmetry resulting from uneven external forces. A strong association exists between DP and developmental delay. We investigated the effect of DP severity on developmental delay. METHODS Between 2010 and 2016, data from 155 patients with DP were reviewed retrospectively. Two indices were used to evaluate the deformation quantitatively: cranial index (CI) and cranial vault asymmetry index (CVAI). The Bayley Scales of Infant… CONTINUE READING
