Support Groups Sagittal Synostosis


Sagittal Synostosis Homepage - Sagittal synostosis (also known as scaphocephaly, dolicocephaly, sagittal craniostenosis, or sagittal craniosynostosis), is a condition in infants where the sagittal suture (the ‘soft spot’ or fontanelle on top of the head between the left and right sides of the skull) closes early and restricts growth of the head in the side to side direction. This forces the head to grow in a front to back direction, leading to a narrow elongated head.
