A case report involving a 26 year old woman, gravida 3, para 2002, who was referred for sonographic and clinical evaluation for fetal skull abnormality was described. The sonographic appearance of a more unusual asymmetric craniosynostosis was revealed. Fetal craniosynostosis is uncommon, but careful prenatal sonography may establish the diagnosis, which will greatly facilitate clinical management. Evaluation of skull symmetry and careful intracranial examination and general fetal evaluation must be made in every fetus with a skull contour abnormality.
