PMID:  19892634     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Craniosynostosis is characterized by the fusion of sutures. It presents with an abnormal head shape. This article examines this defect and discusses its embryologic origin. A systemic physical assessment guide serves as a tool to enhance early recognition of this defect. Pictorial examples increase understanding of the defect. A discussion of treatment and nursing implications, with an emphasis on family support, is provided.
