Caption: View of the top of the head of an infant suffering from a right coronal synostosis - the abnormal knitting of the bones in her skull. In a normal child, vertical grooves in the skull called cranial sutures remain open throughout the first year, acting as expansion joints for the plates of the skull to grow & accommodate an enlarging brain. In this case, skull growth around her right forehead has stopped & the left forehead is bulging due to a growing brain. The uneven growth results in a progressive deformity which is threatening sight in her right eye & also carries a risk of future mental retardation.
