The shape of the skull is altered depending on which of the sutures are fused prematurely. The etiology of craniosynostosis is heterogeneous.

Craniosynostosis is one of a diverse group of deformities in the head and facial bones called craniofacial anomalies. An infant or child with craniosynostosis has improperly fused or joined bones sutures in the skull. When children with craniosynostosis also show other body deformities, their condition is called syndromic craniosynostosis.

Autism and craniosynostosis are both disorders than can affect a child's neurological development, and there is limited evidence that these conditions may be linked in some cases. Craniosynostosis, a condition in which the bones of the skull fuse too early, can cause too much pressure on a child's brain and can lead to learning disabilities and problems with language development. Autism shares a few traits with this disorder, and in some cases, it may even share a genetic cause. The Mayo Clinic reports that craniosynostosis is usually treated with surgery very early in a child's life; however, if left untreated, it can lead to seizures, facial deformities, blindness, and brain damage.
The aim of this study was to perform a morphometric analysis of untreated adult skulls displaying syndromic and nonsyndromic craniosynostosis. We analyzed, in detail, 42 adult craniosynostoses 18 scaphocephaly, 11 anterior plagiocephaly, 2 trigonocephaly, 9 oxycephaly, and 2 brachycephaly from archeological three skulls and pathoanatomical samples 39 skulls. The univariate and bivariate measurements from the pathological skulls were compared with 40 anatomical skulls with normal cranial vault morphology.
