Skull Dolichocephaly and Scaphocephaly

  • Dolichocephaly (Greek, dolikhos = long) and scaphocephaly (Greek, scaphe = boat)
  • cranial vault deformities that result from premature fusion of the sagittal suture.
  • resultant increase in the anterior-posterior dimension.
  • restriction of biparietal growth.

3DCT volume rendered images. Left anterior (A), posterior (B) and endocranial (C) images

  • white arrows - show fusion and prominent ridging of the sagittal suture
  • *frontal and occipital bossing

Also note the increased anterior-posterior dimension and restricted biparietal diameter.
