A cranial deformity, such as plagiocephaly, is a skull deformation produced in the growing period by the mechanical pressure of any skull’s part before, during or after delivery.
he bones of the cranial vault and base of the fetus and the infant under three months are still poorly ossified and are separated from each other by sutures and fontanelles. If for any reason receive an excessive or continuous pressure, normal growth is interfered with and can cause deformations.
Flattening in the back of the head, mostly on the right side.
Flattening of the back of the head, more or less symmetrical.
Transverse and elongated flattening, narrow and high head.
Mix of several cranial deformities (plagiocephaly, brachycephaly and scaphocephaly)
