Intracranial hypertension in a patient with craniofacial synostosis and patent sutures JOURNAL OF CRANIOFACIAL SURGERY Williams, J. K., Longaker, M. T., Wisoff, J., McCarthy, J. G. 1997; 8 (5): 373-378

Abstract

Craniosynostosis is often associated with restrictive cranial vault deformities, diminished intracranial volume, and intracranial hypertension. Advances in imaging techniques have provided a method of intracranial volume analysis that has demonstrated a more complicated relationship between craniofacial abnormalities and elevated intracranial pressures. Studies have confirmed a decrease in intracranial volume in the presence of craniosynostosis, but this association is not found in every patient. We report an unusual case of elevated intracranial pressure in a patient with the clinical stigmata of Crouzon's syndrome but with patent cranial vault sutures.
