Core Tip

Core tip: We report the unique case of isolated bilateral squamosal suture synostosis in a 13-mo old patient with Crouzon syndrome. Although bicoronal sutures are most commonly involved in patients with Crouzon syndrome, it is important to be familiar with this rare entity of craniosynostosis in order to prevent misdiagnosis or delayed surgical treatment.
