Flat back of head: positional or pathological?
This article reviews the aetiology and natural history of deformational (posterior positional) plagiocephaly, comparing it with the head shape seen in pathological lambdoid synostosis. The significance and treatment of both conditions are explained, with emphasis on the fact that deformational plagiocephaly is entirely avoidable.
