Synopsis

This book provides clear guidance on the prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment of positional plagiocephaly. Information is first presented on classification, epidemiology and etiopathogenesis. Diagnosis is then explained in detail, covering the significance of anamnestic data, physical examination, differential diagnosis, instrumental examinations and anthropometric measurements. Preventive measures such as "tummy time" and physiotherapy are described and the role of orthoses, osteopathy and surgery in treatment is closely examined. The closing chapter addresses prognosis and complications. Positional plagiocephaly is not only a "cosmetic" problem but can cause facial and mandibular asymmetry, visual disturbances and cognitive and psychomotor impairment, yet when correctly treated it usually resolves by 6-7 years of age. This book will be an ideal aid for pediatricians, neurosurgeons, maxillo-facial surgeons, orthopedic physicians, physiotherapists and for all involved in preventing and managing the condition.
