ROJAS VILLEGAS, Ronald; VARGAS LOPEZ, Doroteo  and  DE LA RIVA PARRA, Vladimir. Diagnosis and treatment of plagiocephaly: clinical case presentation and clinical review. Rev. Odont. Mex [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.2, pp.106-114. ISSN 1870-199X.

Plagiocephaly can be defined as the premature closing of the frontal-parietal suture or unilateral coronal suture which is caused by a frontal-parietal (unicoronal) synostosis, and/or fusions along the coronal suture. Plagiocephaly is characterized by facial asymmetry in the frontal region, inclination of the head towards the affected side as well as deviation of the chin towards the non-affected side. We herein present the case of a five month old female infant with plagiocephaly, facial asymmetry with right side predominance, posterior and superior displacement of the eyebrow and supra-orbital ridge. The case was treated with ipsilateral frontal-orbital advancement, at the Regional Hospital <<Lic. Adolfo Lopez Mateos>>, ISSSTE, Mexico City.

Keywords : Plagiocephaly; frontal-orbital advancement; stereolithography.
