Abstract: We present a case of a 14-week-old girl with metopic synostosis and an incidental finding of a large, pentagonal bregmatic wormian bone. No prior photographic evidence of this combination of rare findings exists. An extensive review of the incidence, etiology, and significance of these unusual supernumerary cranial bones is provided in this study.
