Craniosynostosis thank you notes

Premature skull suture closure can be classified in several ways. Single suture synostosis refers to a condition where only one suture is affected, all others are open and typically the babies are otherwise normal. Multiple synostosis can involve the closure of one, two, three or more sutures. If only the sutures are closed and no other problems can be found, then the classification of “non syndromic multisuture synostosis” is applied. If several sutures are closed and other well-known systemic problems are found, then the term “syndromic multisuture synostosis” is used. Common syndromes include: Crouzon, Apert, and Pfeiffer.
