The purposes of this article were to analyze the relationship between metopic craniosynostosis and positional plagiocephaly and to define more clearly the differences between the changes seen with true suture fusion compared with metopic abnormalities secondary to positional changes. This is an institutional review board-approved retrospective review of three-dimensional… CONTINUE READING
