Caption: Helmet to treat plagiocephaly. 7 month old baby wearing a plastic helmet to correct the condition plagiocephaly. Plagiocephaly is a congenital (present from birth) asymmetrical distortion in the shape of the head due to irregular fusion of the sutures (immovable joints) between the bones of the skull. It may be caused by restrictions in the womb or a spasm of the neck muscles on one side of the body. Most cases need no treatment and resolve themselves in a few months. In some cases a helmet is used to gently correct the malformation.
