Premature fusion of cranial sutures in craniosynostosis has been thought to lead to craniostenosis, which in turn may lead to increased intracranial pressures. In 41 consecutive patients with craniosynostosis, intracranial pressure and intracranial volume were measured. Of the 41 patients, 38 (92.6%) had raised intracranial pressure but only 4 (9.7%) had a decreased skull volume. In the present study, there is no correlation between intracranial volume and intracranial pressure. This study confirms that the measurement of intracranial volume, a non invasive procedure, cannot be used to assess intracranial pressure and to avoid an invasive procedure.
