    Background: Craniosynostosis (CS), the premature fusion of cranial sutures, is a relatively common pediatric anomaly, occurring in isolation or as part of a syndrome. A growing number of genes with pathologic mutations have been identified for syndromic and nonsyndromic CS. The study of human...

    Objective: Various causal mechanisms of familial nonsyndromic craniosynostosis have been presented. One hypothesis suggests that overproduction of bone at the suture is the primary origin of craniosynostosis, which affects brain and cranial growth secondarily through altered intracranial...

    When normal development and growth of the calvarial sutures is disrupted, craniosynostosis (premature calvarial suture fusion) may result. Classical craniosynostosis syndromes are autosomal dominant traits and include Apert, Pfeiffer, Crouzon, Jackson-Weiss, and Saethre-Chotzen syndromes. In...

    Introduction: Non-syndromic craniosynostoses (NSC) occur as isolated skull malformations due to the premature ossification of one (single-suture forms) or more (complex forms) calvarial sutures and represent the most frequent form of craniosynostosis worldwide. The etiology of NSC is still...
