OBJECTIVE Anterior fontanel size and closure time can be useful clinical signs for the early diagnosis of diseases. Knowing age-related normal variations is important to decide on further investigations. The authors of this study aimed to describe fontanel size variation according to age, determine fontanel closure time, and identify the optimal method for assessing fontanel size.
