The Causes And Ways Of Dealing With The Back Of The Skull Are Prominent In Children Aged 14 Months?
, my child is 14 months old, the skull of the back of the head stands out. How to deal with it?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Symptoms of protrusion of the skull in infants that result in deformity of the head need to be suspected as a condition of craniosynostosis. Craniosynostosis is a condition where the fontanel closes faster in infants so that it will interfere with the development of the brain and skull bones. Craniosynostosis occurs sporadically and is associated with congenital abnormalities.
Symptoms and symptoms are commonly seen when the baby is born, and become clearer after a few months. These symptoms include:
1. The shape of the skull and face of the baby is disproportionate.
2. The baby's head does not develop with age.
3. There is no visible crown.
To ensure the suspicion of the condition, a physical examination is needed by the doctor directly. The diagnosis can be confirmed by examination as a head X-ray or CT scan of the head. If the diagnosis of craniosynostosis has been confirmed through this examination, the main treatment is surgery that aims to reduce pressure inside the head and correct the deformity of the skull.
For now, it's best to do a checkup with your doctor so that you can check and rule out the possibility of craniosynostosis.
That's all, hope you can help.
