Re: Large head

Hi Prof

Sutures/fontanelles are closed and no clinical signs of hydrocephalus. I was mistaken about the measurement and it is 51 cm which puts him at the 90th percentile. Our paed will re-measure in 2 to 3 months time. I emailed him and he is not concerned at this stage. I will trust him in his judgement...
