SCAPHOCEPHALY

Scaphocephaly is a condition where the skull is disproportionately narrow and looks rather elongated. It is characterized by an asymmetrical flattening on the sides of the skull. In addition to irregular pressures on the skull in utero, it can also arise from premature closure or fusion of the cranial/skull bones, or sutures.
