What does this prominence of the top of an infant's head indicate?


Posted by Marlys

female infant, 3 weeks of age, displaying head deformity at top left & right

lobes with midline suture area flat; when palpated, these enlarged areas are soft

as if filled with liquid.  They are very prominent and looking at her from the front,

it looks heart-shaped at the back 2/3 of head with the frontal lobe area normal.

The information that I have found so far is just about circumference & flatness.
