The skull base sutures, synchondroses and ossification centers were all assessed by the author for normal appearance and degree of suture closure.
The intersphenoidal (iss) and the intrapostsphenodial synchondroses (its) showed complete fusion at birth in 188 cases (94%) and in all cases above the age of 3 months, but a sclerotic remnant is more commonly seen in the intersphenoid synchondrosis (Figure 6).
