Craniosynostosis is a complex condition, characterized by the premature fusion of one of more of the cranial sutures. They can be seen individually or as part of multisystem syndromes. This review uses computed tomography (CT) with three-dimensional reconstructions to help describe some of the types and classifications of craniosynostosis, as well as describing some of the associations and the management of craniosynostosis.
