57 Possible Causes for Anterior Fontanelle Open in Adults, Frontal and Occipital Prominence

  • Pyknodysostosis

    Short stature (adult height usually less than 150 cm [59 inches] for males) caused by short limbs, large, disproportionate head with frontal and occipital bossing, delayed[accessanesthesiology.mhmedical.com] […] suture closure and prolonged persistence of fontanels, and lack of frontal sinuses.[accessanesthesiology.mhmedical.com] The midface is hypoplastic with a prominent nose, grooved palate, and hypoplasia of the mandibular angles, making these patients prone to obstructive sleep apnea.[accessanesthesiology.mhmedical.com]

  • Cleidocranial Dysplasia

    OBJECTIVE: Early prenatal diagnosis of cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) in a case in which molecular genetic analysis of the RUNX2 gene was non-informative. METHODS: 2D ultrasound examination. RESULTS: At week 13 6, a 2D ultrasound examination revealed a fetus with severely delayed ossification of the vertebral spine.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neonatal Hypoglycemia

    CT images also demonstrated parenchymal loss of occipital lobes as evidenced by the prominence of the occipital horns of both lateral ventricles.[ijri.org] The basal ganglia, temporal and frontal lobes were spared.[ijri.org] CT study of the brain revealed edema and multiple hypodense areas resembling infarctions involving both the cortex and underlying white matter, but restricted to the occipital[ijri.org]

    The difference was most prominent between the group of hippocampal lesions on the head and tail.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] more posterior lesions were associated with hypoperfusion of the posterior temporal, parietal, occipital and cerebellar areas.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: Statistical parametric mapping analyses revealed that more anterior DWI lesions were associated with hypoperfusion of the anterior temporal and frontal areas, whereas[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    All showed atrophy of the frontal region, most prominent in the precentral gyrus (fig 1 ). We also saw atrophy in the parietal-occipital region of the brain (fig 2 ).[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Fibrous Dysplasia

    The external occipital protuberance may be prominent; however, these features are less common in Paget disease, neurofibromatosis, and meningioma.[emedicine.com] Skull and facial bones The frontal bone is involved more frequently than the sphenoid, with obliteration of the sphenoid and frontal sinuses.[emedicine.com]
