Resumen

Background The authors report the morphological and
neuroimaging findings of an immature human fossil
(Cranium 14) diagnosed with left lambdoid synostosis.
Discussion The skull was recovered at the Sima de los
Huesos site in Atapuerca (Burgos, Spain). Since the human
fossil remains from this site have been dated to a minimum
age of 530,000 years, this skull represents the earliest
evidence of craniosynostosis occurring in a hominid. A
brief historical review of craniosynostosis and cranial
deformation is provided.
