Plagiocephaly

What is plagiocephaly?

Plagio- in Greek refers to ‘oblique’; Cephalad- refers to the head. In combination, the term plagiocephaly refers to a musculoskeletal condition in which there is an asymmetry of the baby’s head, or oblique head, when viewed from the top. This is often accompanied by torticollis (head rotated and/or side tilted) and mandibular hypoplasia (smaller jaw bone on one side).
