Cloverleaf skull, also known as kleeblattschädel syndrome or deformity, refers to a type of severe craniosynostosis which gives the skull a cloverleaf shape. It is very rare, with less than 130 case reports globally. It typically results from intrauterine premature closure of the sagittal, coronal and lambdoid sutures, through which the cranial contents bulge, giving rise to the. Two cases with the characteristic features of the Kleeblattschädel anomaly are presented. The precise etiology of this rare syndrome is unknown and no genetic or environmental factors have been identified to date. Within the spectrum of disorders characterized by craniostenosis, the Kleeblattschädel

Pediatric Cloverleaf Deformity. Cloverleaf deformity is an extremely rare skull deformity that happens when several joints (sutures) between a baby's skull bones begin to fuse too early. Also known as Kleeblattschädel syndrome, the cloverleaf deformity causes bulging at the front and sides of the skull, resembling a cloverleaf shape KLEEBLATTSCHÄDEL syndrome, translated to cloverleaf skull by Comings, 1 is the evocative name given by Holtermüller and Wiedemann 2 to the grotesque, trilobed skull resulting from congenital hydrocephalus associated with intra-uterine synostosis of the coronal and lambdoidal sutures. The increased intracranial pressure is manifested as bulging in the areas of the sagittal suture and. Two new cases of the Kleeblattschädel syndrome are reported. The first a 14-year-old girl, is the oldest recorded patient, and the second represents the typical long bone changes. Report of Cases Case 1.—The first patient, a 14-year-old white girl, was the product of a 33-year-old, gravida 4, para 2, abortus 2 mother and a 34-year-old father

  4. Craniosynostosis is a condition in which one or more of the fibrous sutures in a young infant's skull prematurely fuses by turning into bone (ossification), thereby changing the growth pattern of the skull. Because the skull cannot expand perpendicular to the fused suture, it compensates by growing more in the direction parallel to the closed sutures..

Das Zustandsbild ist dem Kleeblattschädel-Syndrom von Holtermüller und Wiedemann zuzuordnen
  3. Craniosynostosis Symptoms. Craniosynostosis causes a change in the normal shape of the head. If a suture − the seam between two skull bones − is fused, it cannot grow, and the bones with open sutures then grow more than usual to allow enough room for brain growth. In many children, the only symptom may be an irregularly shaped head

Abstract Background Kleeblattschädel skull, also known as the cloverleaf is a complex synostosis which presents with an enlarged tri-lobar skull resulting temporal bulging and a flat posterior skull, a rare find in the population. This pansynostosis is associated with other congenital syndromes which include Crouzon, Pfeifer, and Carpenter's We describe monozygotic twins with thanatophoric dysplasia who were discordant for the Kleeblattschädel anomaly, but were identical in all other respects, including the histologic appearance of the endochondral growth plate. The observation suggests that the skull anomaly represents a variable manifestation of thanatophoric dysplasia, and that. Der Kleeblattschädel Ein Beitrag zur Morphogenese. Authors: Gathmann, H.

To the Editor .—In a recent communication, Hall et al 1 observed that a severe case of Crouzon's syndrome with a trilobed skull in an affected family might well have been interpreted as the Kleeblattschadel syndrome had the case arisen as a fresh mutation. They further noted that in some instances Crouzon's syndrome and the Kleeblattschadel syndrome might be one and the same disorder Cloverleaf deformity (or Kleeblattschädel): Premature fusion of coronal (ear-to-ear), lambdoid (across the back of the head), sagittal (top of head, front to back), and possibly other sutures; Pansynostosis: Premature fusion of three or more (up to all) skull sutures . Symptoms of Multisuture Synostosi Of these 10 children, 5 had kleeblattschädel, two with Crouzon's syndrome, one with Pfeiffer's syndrome, and 2 with multiple anomalies. In all patients, hydrocephalus was controlled by a shunting procedure. Possible causes of hydrocephalus in association with craniosynostosis are discussed.

Synostosis may involve various sutures in different types of cloverleaf skulls. Their facial features, radiographic findings, and CNS anomalies are also reviewed Saethre-Chotzen syndrome is a genetic condition characterized by craniofacial and limb anomalies, with craniosynostosis (mainly coronal) being the most frequent craniofacial finding.

There are four main presentations of primary pancraniosynostosis: kleeblattschädel, difficult to classify complex cranial dysmorphologies, progressive cranial suture fusion in syndromic craniosynostosis, and normocephalic.

Craniosynostosis is the premature fusion of 1 or more cranial sutures during the 1st year of life. Craniosynostosis is classified as simple or complex, and can be caused by environmental factors or genetic syndromes. Patients are typically asymptomatic and concern may arise from caregiver observations

The kleeblattschädel skull deformity occurs secondary to multiple suture synostoses. This results in a significant increase in intracranial pressure that causes the skull deformity shown in the CT scan. The increase in intracranial pressure produces a moth-eaten appearance and is a reason for early surgical intervention View This Abstract Online; Parietal bone agenesis with gracile bones and splenic hypoplasia/aplasia: clinico-pathologic report and differential diagnosis with review of cranio-gracile bone syndromes, osteocraniostenosis and Kleeblattschädel One or more of the skull bone growth areas fuses abnormally, which causes a distortion of the head shape. This process can also result in excess pressure on the brain. Craniosynostosis can affect various parts of the skull. Isolated single suture involvement are the most common type of craniosynostosis.
