Nonsyndromic craniosynostosis results in premature fusion of cranial sutures and is rarely found in the context of other craniofacial abnormalities. Here the authors present the case of a 3-month-old male infant with a rare presentation of sagittal craniosynostosis and concomitant calcified cephalohematoma repaired by endoscopic-assisted sagittal strip craniectomy with good cosmetic and functional outcomes. The authors discuss the advantages of endoscopic repair of craniosynostosis when found in the presence of a cephalohematoma and the need for further research to investigate a possible causal relationship between these 2 pathologies.
