14 Possible Causes for Widened Metopic Suture

  • Nager Syndrome

    CT scan of mid-face with 3D reconstruction revealed widening sutures of skull notably the metopic suture, which was seen widening till the root of nasal bone with shallow[omicsonline.org]

  • Encephalocele

    Here, we present several patients with myelomeningocele, severe hydrocephalus, and interfrontal encephalocele accompanied by metopic suture widening and abnormally shaped[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Metopic Suture Synostosis

    Also known as trigonocephaly The metopic suture is located at the front of the head and separates the frontal bones.[ohsu.edu] Other syndromic CS: MUENKE, SAETHRE-CHOTZEN, BALLER-GEROLD, JECKSON-WEISS Bicoronal suture synostosis, normal posterior fossa sutures exorbitism widening of sagittal and[slideshare.net] The plain radiography of this 1-month-baby does not show the wide open metopic suture. However, it demonstrates the sclerotic fused suture.[jkns.or.kr]

    Brachycephaly with coronal craniosynostosis, widened metopic and sagittal sutures, hypoplastic midface, shallow orbits with proptosis, enlarged sella, stylohyoid calcification[radnotes.co.nz]

  • Isolated Synostotic Plagiocephaly

    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.[childrens.com] The orientation of the remaining open sutures – the coronal, lambdoid and metopic sutures – can only create bone perpendicular to their axis.[childrens.com]
