Abstract

Bathrocephaly is a posterior cranial deformity associated with failure of fusion of the mendosal suture. Infants are born with a prominent occipital bone. Here we discuss a case report of bathrocephaly in a newborn discussing management, imaging finding, differential diagnosis and relevant bony anatomy and development.
