Abstract

Normocephalic pancraniosynostosis is a rare form of craniosynostosis that usually presents later in life secondary to a delayed onset of symptoms and the presence of a normal head shape. Since its initial description in the literature in 2010, normocephalic pancraniosynostosis remains a rare clinical entity that has only been reported in 6 patients. Surgical treatment in the 2 published reports has been by staged total calvarial reconstruction or anterior cranial vault remodeling with bilateral frontoorbital advancement. In this case report, the authors present 1 patient with normocephalic pancraniosynostosis and propose surgical treatment by anterior cranial vault expansion with distraction osteogenesis.
