Why Would A Doctor Do About The Anterior Fontanelle If Its To Small
At my daughters 4 month well visit, her doc asked to get skull X-ray suspecting a small anterior fontanelle. It was a small since birth, so i worry?
In an infant, the space where two skull-bone sutures join forms a membrane-covered "soft spot" called a fontanel (fontanelle). The fontanels allow for growth of the skull during an infant's first year. The fontanels should feel firm and very slightly curved inward to the touch.
