Reply: Very low prevalence of intracranial hypertension in trigonocephaly
We read with interest the letter by Dr. Rogers regarding our article on the prevalence of intracranial hypertension in trigonocephaly.
This article describes the occurrence of intracranial hypertension, assessed through funduscopy, and its relation with the occipitofrontal head circumference curve in trigonocephaly patients.
