The diagnosis of late-presentation sagittal suture craniosynostosis (SCS) can be challenging, especially in the setting of subtle exam findings. The clinical significance of clinocephaly a retro-coronal concavity along the midvault in this context remains unknown. Miles J. Pfaff and his co-authors from the Department of Plastic Surgery evaluated the clinical significance of clinocephaly in late-presentation SCS. The authors found that 42.7% of patients with clinocephaly had SCS. Unique sutural fusion patterns were identified in those with SCS. This study suggests that the presence of clinocephaly on exam should prompt the provider to consider further work-up for SCS.
