Abstract
Brachyecphaly is a kind of craniosynostosis. Because of premature closure of the coronal suture, the skull is shorter in the anteroposterior diameter but is widened with a high vault and the occiput and borehead are flattened. Diabetes insipidus had been reported in oxycephaly. We have experienced a case of central diabetes insipidus associated with brachcephaly. A brief review of related literatures is included in this report.
Key Words: Brachycephaly, Craniosynostosis, Diabetes insipidus, Hydrocephalus
