Craniosynostosis is the premature closure of the cranial sutures. We present the radiological findings of a six-month old case who presented with small head and frontal triangular shape and who was found to have generalized pitting and softness on palpation of the head. The three-dimensional images computed tomography (CT) showed a sagittal, coronal and metopic suture synostosis with exaggerated convolutional markings in the form of lacunar skull. This case report showed that patients with craniosynostosis should be evaluated by three-dimensional images CT.
