42 Possible Causes for Headache, Metopic Suture Synostosis

  • Achondroplasia

    A 15-year-old boy with achondroplasia developed right hemifacial spasm associated with headache, vomiting, and hearing disturbance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Besides the specific features of achondroplasia, synostosis of the metopic, coronal, lambdoid, and squamosal sutures was found.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Some of these patients had severe neurological abnormalities and sleep apnea, while others just developed headaches and/or had apnea episodes when sleeping or in a car seat[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Craniosynostosis

    All infants born between 2006 and 2012 in the Netherlands and Sweden with sagittal or metopic suture synostosis were included.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The cohort included 383 patients, of whom 127 (33 percent) complained of headaches.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] To enhance the prenatal detection of the metopic and the sagittal suture synostosis, we wished to identify new screening parameters.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anencephaly

    In the atelencephalic fetus, severe microcephaly, flattened calvaria, and partial synostosis of the metopic suture were apparent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other complications of stopping antidepressant use can include flu-like symptoms, sleep problems, anxiety, irritability, headache, stomach cramps and dizziness.[drugwatch.com]

  • Metopic Suture Synostosis

    Metopic suture synostosis leading to trigonocephaly is considered the second most frequent type of craniosynostosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As the child grows this type of head-shape will worsen and can cause abnormal behaviors and headaches in the child.[houstoncraniofacial.com] Ask for an urgent appointment if your child also has: constant headaches problems with their vision – like blurred or double vision a decline in their school performance These[nhs.uk]

  • Ghosal Syndrome

    […] disorders that affect the nervous system, neurodegenerative disease, neuroimmunology, neuroinfectious disease, epilepsy, sleep disorders, neuromuscular disorders, brain tumors, headache[neuro.wustl.edu] Craniofacial abnormalities found were brachycephaly (cephalic index 95.45), frontal bossing, large anterior fontanel, open metopic suture, synostosis in sagittal and lambdoid[jcnonweb.com] They may also experience systemic symptoms ranging from fatigue to a foggy mind, headache and depression, joint and muscle pain, dermatitis (eczema or skin rash), or anemia[imi.com.hk]

  • Craniosynostosis with Ocular Abnormalities and Hallucal Defects

    Craniofacial abnormalities found were brachycephaly (cephalic index 95.45), frontal bossing, large anterior fontanel, open metopic suture, synostosis in sagittal and lambdoid[jcnonweb.com] Migraine headaches ipsilateral to the original site of the facial hemangioma have also been observed (Metry et al., 2001).[sonoworld.com] The presence of increased ICP is suggested by: Clinically: bulging of still-open fontanels; stretched sutures and craniectomy defects; in older children, headache and vomiting[neupsykey.com]

  • Baller-Gerold Syndrome

    Severely affected individuals may be myopic or hy-peropic and may suffer from severe headaches (War-man et al. 1993).[rrnursingschool.biz] We report three patients with a history of maternal valproate use during pregnancy who presented with a combination of metopic suture synostosis and upper limb malformations[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here we report on a male Caucasian patient of nonconsanguineous parents, with synostosis of the coronal, metopic, and sagittal sutures, and bilateral radial ray hypoplasia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Apert Syndrome

    One of our twins had a metopic synostosis while Apert syndrome is often characterized by the large metopic suture that closes much later when compared to normal children.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Raised intracranial pressure causing behavioral changes, frequent awakenings during the night (intracranial pressure rises during REM-sleep) and headaches in the morning.[symptoma.com] Symptoms Increased intracranial pressure (ICP) This is characterized by headache and vomiting Upper airway problems Stridor and sleep apnea are the common pulmonary symptoms[syndrome.org]

  • Isolated Trigonocephaly

    Increased pressure within the skull can also cause vomiting, headaches, and decreased appetite.[rarediseases.org] Children with nonsyndromatic isolated metopic suture synostosis suffer from a significant deformity of the supraorbital ridges, the temporal regions and hypotelorism.[pubfacts.com] Some children will experience unusually high pressure on the brain, initially causing headaches.[cincinnatichildrens.org]

  • Hyperostosis Frontalis Interna

    […] both the headache and the HFI.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Stallworthy, J.A. (1932) A case of enlarged parietal foramina associated with metopism and irregular synostosis of the coronal suture. J. Anat. 67:168-174.[anatomyatlases.org] The headaches proved to be refractory to multiple preventative medications and nerve blocks.[n.neurology.org]
