Abstract

The most common, primary referrals to a pediatric neurosurgeon's office are the evaluation and management of the child with a large head (to rule out hydrocephalus and other space occupying lesions) a misshapen head (to rule out various forms of craniosynostosis), or some form of congenital spinal abnormality (spinal dysraphism). The authors discuss the pathogenesis and clinical features of these disorders, provide a framework for diagnostic evaluation and referral, and discuss the various treatment options available for each.
