Copper Beaten Skull! Can It be a Usual Appearance?

Int J Clin Pediatr Dent 2014 Jan 26;7(1):47-9. Epub 2014 Apr 26.

Senior Lecturer, Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology, Jaipur Dental College, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India.

'Copper beaten' skull refers to the prominent convolutional markings seen in multiple bones of the skull. Underlying cause is thought to be related to increased intracranial pressure resulting from such processes as craniosynostosis, obstructive hydrocephalus and/or intracranial masses. However, the copper beaten appearance of the skull has poor sensitivity in detecting increased intracranial pressure as such an appearance can also be seen in normal patients. Read More

The Crouzon syndrome is a genetic disorder which is known as the brachial arch syndrome. It is an autosomal dominant disorder which is one of a rare group of syndromes which is characterized by cranio synostosis or a premature closing of the cranial sutures. The major features are brachiocephaly, occular proptosis, an under developed maxilla, mid face hypoplasia, a rare cleft lip or palate, hypodontia (some teeth missing) and crowding of teeth.

[Craniosynostosis operations in childhood].

Anasthesiol Intensivmed Notfallmed Schmerzther 1997 Mar;32(3):138-50

Klinik für Anästhesiologie und Intensivmedizin, Universitätskliniken des Saarlandes, Homburg/Saar.

Premature osteosynthesis of one or more cranial bones, either intrauterine or within the first postnatal months, is defined as craniosynostosis. The resulting limitation of intracranial space can cause retardation of cranial growth which, in turn, leads to craniostenosis with increasing intracerebral pressure. Complex forms of craniosynostosis with concomitant malformations (i. Read More

Involvement of the thymus and cellular immune system in craniofacial malformation syndromes.

J Craniofac Surg 1990 Apr;1(2):88-90

Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Craniofacial structures, the aortic arch, thymus, and parathyroid glands all arise from the embryologic pharyngeal pouches, and DiGeorge and Job craniofacial malformation syndromes have defined immunologic deficiencies. The question addressed by this study is whether patients with other pharyngeal pouch malformations could also have immunologic abnormalities. Twelve patients, 4 female and 8 male, were selected at random from the Tampa Bay Craniofacial Center. Read More

Cranio-facial surgery for cranio-synostosis.

D Marchac D Renier

Scand J Plast Reconstr Surg 1981 ;15(3):235-43

Cranio-facial principles have been applied to the treatment of craniosynostosis by the senior author since 1973, and original techniques have been developed for the treatment of oxycephaly, trigonocephaly, plagiocephaly brachycephaly and scaphocephaly; 156 patients have been operated upon. There is now enough follow-up material to establish that the good morphological results obtained initially are maintained through growth, and that there is a definite improvement in affected facial structures when early correction has been performed. The functional results have also been very satisfactory and reoperation for insufficient release has been rare. Read More
