Most medical professionals agree that there is no single cause of these types of abnormalities.
Instead, there are many factors that may contribute to their development, including the following:
Symptoms vary by condition. Your child’s doctor can help you understand your child’s symptoms.
Cranial asymmetry can be diagnosed at several different times. It can sometimes be detected through prenatal ultrasound, may be present at birth or may develop during the first few months of life.
If your child’s deformity worsens or fails to improve after a trial of mechanical adjustments, then you should consider contacting a pediatric neurosurgeon, a general neurosurgeon with expertise in pediatrics, or a craniofacial surgeon or craniofacial anomalies team.
