When assessing infants with plagiocephaly it is important to differentiate between deformational plagiocephaly and craniosynostosis. We report on two children presenting to a paediatric (only) chiropractic clinic for assessment regarding head shape asymmetry who were later diagnosed with lambdoid craniosynostosis. The expected clinical signs of Deformational Plagiocephaly and Craniosynostosis are discussed. In cases of suspected craniosynostosis referral for further imaging is recommended. This paper adds to the evidence base of optimal Paediatric Chiropractic management in infants with Plagiocephaly.
