Forty-seven out of a hundred and fifteen patients operated for craniosynostosis in childhood at the Neurosurgical Institute of Rome University between 1952 and 1980, showed residual ophthalmological deficits to a marked degree at a follow-up study recently performed. Visual field was severely reduced in twenty eyes. Visual acuity was also markedly impaired in thirteen eyes. These ophthalmological findings have been correlated with: 1) age at the postoperative follow-up study; 2) age at the operation. Focal anomalies of the base of the skull and abnormal general morphology have been evaluated by means of the CTscan.
