Does an elevated bony ridge along the course of the metopic suture equal metopic synostosis? Implications for management.
J Craniofac Surg. 2014 Jan; 25(1):55-8.JC

Abstract

Metopic synostosis represents an increasingly prevalent form of nonsyndromic craniosynostosis. Premature fusion of the metopic suture classically results in trigonocephaly, hypotelorism, temporal narrowing, and a pronounced midline forehead ridge. However, as varying degrees of skull deformity exist, there is confusion regarding the appropriate management for an infant with a metopic ridge. We report on a 2-month-old infant with clinical manifestations of metopic synostosis but with a patent metopic suture documented on computed tomography scan. We examine the implications for management related to fusion of the suture, age of the patient, and severity of the head deformity.
