Radiographs demonstrated healed radial neck and olecranon fractures, and an extensive bony synostosis
at the PRUJ (Figures 4(a) and 4(b)).
Craniosynostosis syndromes including Apert, Crouzon, Pfeiffer, Jackson-Weiss, and Beare-Stevenson syndromes, and FGFR2-related isolated coronal synostosis
occur as a result of FGFR2 gene mutations localized in the 10q25.3-26 locus (2).
is a type of cranio synostosis
, a deformity found in infants that changes the growth pattern in their skull.
These have also been found in SHS (DA2B)  and multiple pterygium syndrome (DA8)  and quite recently in autosomal dominant spondylocarpotarsal synostosis
(2007) indicated that syndesmosis fixation through four cortices results in a greater risk of tibiofibular synostosis
and motion restriction, when compared to three-cortex fixation .
Observations on a recent increase in plagiocephaly without synostosis
. Pediatrics, 97:877-885.
A coalition, or bar, is a bony ("synostosis
"), cartilaginous ("synchondrosis"), or fibrous ("syndesmosis") connection between two or more bones.
The foetal profile characterized by the nasal bone's synostosis
, foetal lips and aligned maxilla and mandible was noted.
is the most common phenotype, representing 40 percent to 55 percent of nonsyndromic cases.
The classic clinical triad of Klippel-Feil syndrome (KFS) -short neck, restricted neck mobility, and low dorsal hairline- is the result of congenital synostosis
of a variable number of cervical vertebrae.
In human and veterinary medicine syndactyly has been classified into several types: simple, which affects only soft tissue; complex, involving synostosis
; complete, involving entire length synostosis
of the fused bones; incomplete, when synostosis
does not comprise the entire bone length; complicated, when syndactyly appears with other malformations in the same individual; and uncomplicated if there are no more malformations [1-3].
