Caption: Figure 1: Craniotomy in unicoronal craniosynostosis was done posterior to the fused coronal suture producing bilateral frontal fragment symmetry.
Its proper treatment is operation within first year of Birth10 to stop early fusion of the coronal suture otherwise they get increased intracranial pressure.
Overall coronal suture closes earlier followed by sagittal and lambdoid suture endocranially.
General color (holotype) yellow, crown centrally with beige depression on each side of coronal suture, adjacent to eyes with longitudinal, narrow and whitish stripes laterally, anteriorly with orange patch extending to the base of face, anteclypeus and genae pale yellow.
In addition to the cranial outlines, dorsoventral landmarks included: cervical sensilla, origin of the coronal suture, egg bursters, dorsal mandibular articulations, origin of occipital suture, corneal lenses (17) one, two and three (18), anteromaxillary margins, cervical notches, and tentorial pits on the venter.
Vertex subrectangular, more or less evenly covered in microsculpture and sparse microscopical setae, anteriorly evenly rounded to genae; coronal suture fully developed; anterolateral angle forming small tubercle.
(6) Finally, a slightly depressed transverse sulcus crossed the upper part of the right parietal bone, parallel to the coronal suture, measuring about 5 mm (Figure 7).

The coronal suture usually splits first, followed by the lambdoid and the sagittal sutures.[5]
Anterior cranial fossa was exposed by a bifrontal craniotomy using a craniotome and placing burr holes above the temporal crests and parasagittal posterior to the coronal suture. One cm strip of frontal bone with orbital margin was left as a strut.
Head lengths were measured dorsally from the posterior margin of the head capsule along the coronal suture to the anterior margin of the frontoclypeus, excluding the frontoclypeal sensilla.
