A positional scaphocephaly is a cranial deformity consisting of a narrow and high head by transverse flattening and anteroposterior elongation. It’s more frequent in prematures and ex-preterm infants.
The cranial index is usually below 70 and, in severe cases, below 60. They usually have the same evolutionary neurological problem than prematures.
