44 Possible Causes for Open Metopic Suture

  • Ghosal Syndrome

    Craniofacial abnormalities found were brachycephaly (cephalic index 95.45), frontal bossing, large anterior fontanel, open metopic suture, synostosis in sagittal and lambdoid[]

  • Osteogenesis Imperfecta Congenita - Microcephaly - Cataracts Syndrome

    Except for the metopic suture between the frontal bones, which closes at two years of age, the sutures remain open until brain growth ceases in the second decade of life.[] metopic suture) Congenital infections Rubella (low birth weight, cataracts, “blueberry muffin” skin lesions) Syphilis (saddle nose deformity, joint swelling, maculopapular[] […] shortened limbs, wormian calvarial bones) Chromosomal abnormalities Trisomy 13 (polydactyly, microcephaly, cleft lip and palate) Trisomy 18 (growth retardation, small cranium, open[]

  • Encephalocele

    The patients have an open metopic suture extending widely to the nasal radix producing hypertelorism accompanied by interfrontal herniation of frontal lobes.[]

  • Microphthalmia Type Lenz

    The cranial sutures and fontanels were opened, and the metopic suture was prominent. The anus was normally positioned and patent.[]

  • Trigonocephaly

    Surgical treatment by opening of the prematurely fused metopic suture and expansion of the anterior cranial base by creating "neosutures" was used to treat three children[] The metopic suture is usually open at birth and normally fuses in the first 12 months of life.[] Causes The metopic suture is usually open at birth and fusion normally occurs in the first 12 months of life.[]

  • Cleidocranial Dysplasia

    We report a 19-year-old woman with opened metopic and sagittal sutures and delayed closure of the anterior fontanelle.[] (c) Lateral skull radiograph showing hypoplasia of mid-facial bones, open sutures, wormian bones and metopic sutures.[] The wide-open metopic suture results in separation of the frontal bones by a metopic groove. The forehead is broad and flat; the cranium is brachycephalic.[]

  • Isolated Scaphocephaly

    The orientation of the remaining open sutures – the coronal, lambdoid and metopic sutures – can only create bone perpendicular to their axis.[] When the sagittal suture is closed the skull can’t widen, so the remaining open sutures must create more bone to make room for the growing brain.[] The lack of bone growth at the sagittal suture and extra bone growth at the remaining open sutures makes the head longer and narrower than usual.[]
