Open Metopic: Lily

Metopic Skull Top-250Lily’s pediatrician sent her to the craniofacial team at age 5 months for evaluation of her head shape. Her photos from that visit on the left demonstrate that she had a severe form of trigonocephaly with a very narrow and pointed forehead. Her eyes were quite close-set, which is a common feature of metopic craniosynostosis. Lily was treated with an open cranial vault remodeling with fronto-orbital advancement at age 10 months. Her one-year postoperative photos are on the right.
