Abstract

Craniosynostoses are a complex and heterogeneous group of conditions. The purpose of this review is to describe the entity of craniosynostosis and its associated genes along with the ophthalmic and systemic findings. Several genes such as FGFRs, TWIST1, and MSX2 are involved in both syndromic and nonsyndromic craniosynostosis.
