Resumé

Case
Case
The authors describe the case of an 8-year-old boy with pansynostosis in the context of Albright’s hereditary osteodystrophy (AHO). This condition had lead to raised intracranial pressure (ICP). The elevated ICP was a consequence of the rigid skull impeding brain growth. Therefore, a decompressive cranioplasty was performed successfully, leaving further space for the growing brain. Affection of the central nervous system has been documented in AHO. However, affection of the skull bones has rarely been described in literature.

Conclusion
We suggest that craniosynostosis may develop in patients with AHO and other types of pseudohypoparathyroidism (PHP). Furthermore, we suggest regular head circumference-for-age and ophthalmic examination for children with AHO or other types of PHP.
