It is a deformity characterized by a remarkable enlargement of the head, with a trilobed configuration of the frontal view, resembling a threeleaved clover. Until 1981, only 30 cases had been published in the literature, the first of them in 1973, in the ophthalmic literature. The present case report describes severe craniofacial condition that is known as "cloverleaf skull syndrome".
