Sagittal synostosis in twin girls.

Academic Article


  • INTRODUCTION: Sagittal synostosis has been found to occur in families at a low frequency. All previous reports of sagittal synostosis in twins have been of males. CASE REPORT: We now report a case of female twins concordant for sagittal synostosis. CONCLUSION: Our hopes are that this information will further our understanding of the genetics of sagittal synostosis not only in single births but also in that of twins.
