Factitious lambdoid perisutural sclerosis: Does the "sticky suture" exist?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

7 Scopus citations


We report a patient with occipital flattening attributed to lambdoid synostosis on the basis of perisutural sclerosis. The lambdoid suture was patent at surgery and by histology. Specimen radiography showed no perisutural sclerosis. This case questions the validity of perisutural sclerosis as a radiographic indicator of impending lambdoid synostosis.
