Craniofacial microsomia is a congenital malformation complex associated with a wide array of craniofacial and extracraniofacial anomalies. Frontal plagiocephaly has been shown to occur in approximately 5% to 12% of patients with craniofacial microsomia. The etiology of craniofacial microsomia-associated frontal plagiocephaly is unclear; of the cases described in the literature, all but one had physical findings suggestive of deformational plagiocephaly. In the case with equivocal physical findings, radiographic studies showed no evidence of craniosynostosis. Unlike the above cases, we report a documented case of radiologically-confirmed unilateral coronal synostosis in a child with craniofacial microsomia.
