In brief: Infection

any chronic condition whether infectious such as Tuberculosis or AIDS, or non-infectious, such as cancer can cause malnutrition and protein wasting, which may cause muscle breakdown with waste of facial muscles, so even though the head may appear smaller, but the scull itself doesn't change in size significantly
