Medical Complications of Craniostenosis

Craniostenosis occurs when an infant’s skull bones do not fuse properly, leaving the skull abnormally formed. In addition to a deformed physical appearance, craniostenosis is linked to some serious medical complications, such as:

  • Severe seizures
  • Brain damage
  • Sensory problems, such as poor eyesight, hearing, or smell
  • Upper airway obstructions
  • Blindness

In rare cases, children with craniostenosis can die from the defect. Fortunately, this serious condition is treatable with surgeries, but these can be very expensive, time-consuming, and stressful for the child and his or her family members.
