This study aimed to present the case of a patient with trigonocephaly who was operated at 6 months of age with bifrontal craniotomy and fronto-orbital advancement. Trigonocephaly is a premature fusion and ossification of the metopic suture. The calvarial growth restriction causes decreased intracranial volume. Thus, a surgical intervention is indicated to restore the volume of the skull along with appearance.
