The aim of the present thesis is to extend the existing knowledge on both the prevalence and etiology of (neuro)cognitive, behavioral and emotional problems in children with craniosynostosis.
In Part 1 we report on the prevalence of (neuro)cognitive, behavioral and emotional problems in children with craniosynostosis, with additional focus on children with trigonocephaly, using validated instruments and taking intelligence level (IQ scores) into account.
In Part 2 we aim to extend the existing knowledge on the etiology of cognitive problems in children with craniosynostosis.
