15.3.1 Craniofacial Dysplasia 15.3.1.1 Craniostenosis

This clinical picture involves premature fusion of the cranial sutures. Clinical signs often include bilateral exophthalmos associated with ocular hyper-telorism and exotropia (divergent strabismus). The mechanical impairment of the optic nerve is evidenced by development of papilledema and requires surgical decompression to prevent atrophy of the optic nerve.
