Lambdoid synostosis

Common Name(s)

Lambdoid synostosis

Craniosynostosis is a primary abnormality of skull growth involving premature fusion of the cranial sutures such that the growth velocity of the skull often cannot match that of the developing brain. This produces skull deformity and, in some cases, raises intracranial pressure, which must be treated promptly to avoid permanent neurodevelopmental disability (summary by {2:Fitzpatrick, 2013}). Craniosynostosis-4 includes lambdoid, sagittal, metopic, coronal, and multisuture forms. For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of craniosynostosis, see CRS1 ({123100}).

Humeroradioulnar synostosis in a patient with lambdoid synostosis.
 

Author(s): T J Edwards, E A Haan, I J Humphrey

Journal: J. Med. Genet.. 1993 Jan;30(1):81-2.

 

We report on a patient with humeroradioulnar synostosis and lambdoid synostosis. The case differs from three previously described cases in minor details, but the upper limb abnormalities are strikingly similar.
