Abstract

Metopic synostosis is a relatively rare form of nonsyndromic synostosis. Premature closure of the metopic suture results in deformation of the anterior calvarium, in the phenotypic features of trigonocephaly Trigonocephalic deformities are recognized because of a pathognomic 'keel-shaped' deformity of the forehead with a prominent midline ridge, bilateral frontotemporal constriction with compensatory biparietal expansion, supraorbital and lateral orbital retrusion and hypotelorism.
