Introduction: Although cranial suture syn-ostosis as the leading cause of craniosyn-ostosis and its consequences is a relatively common disease in Iran, unfortunately there is no accurate statistics about the type and incidence of the disease in Iran. For the reason, the aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency and complications of cranios-ynostosis in Iran. Materials & Methods: Regarding to the fact that Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences is a referral center for surgical ma-nagement of craniosynostois, the patients who were referred to this center and under-gone into surgical treatment, between 1996-2011 were studied retrospectively. Findings: From 222 patients who unde-rgone into surgical reconstruction for cran-iosynostosis, the most common groups were plagiocephally (right and left) (37.61%), trigonocephally (37%), brachioc-ephally (20%) and scaphocephally (4.5%) groups, respectively. Discussion & Conclusion: Since the scaph-ocephalic patients who need surgical recon-struction, are appeared normal for general population and even for physicians, so their prevalence are underestimated.
