The cranium is composed of 5 major bones separated by 6 major seams called sutures. The early closure of any of these sutures, which occurs in one out of approximately every 2,200 births, can lead to abnormal growth patterns of the head as the brain expands in ways it was not meant to. This condition, called craniosynostosis, can lead to an abnormal shape of the head, and in some children it can even affect normal brain development. For this reason, surgical repair of this condition is often recommended.
