The differential diagnostics between the common positional posterior plagiocephaly and relatively rare lambdoid synostosis is important due to the differences in their treatment plan and clinical management. However, the clinical criteria for the diagnosis of lambdoid synostosis are not clear since there is a considerable overlap in the features of positional posterior plagiocephaly and unilateral lambdoid synostosis. To systematically evaluate the clinical findings in these 2 patient groups… CONTINUE READING
