Figure 5.7. Asymmetry of the face and head in an infant at birth due to a deformation.

Figure 5.8. The same infant demonstrating that this occurred as a result of the right upper extremity lying in apposition to the face and head on the right side in utero.

Figure 5.9. This normal infant presented at birth widi a depression over its left temporal area. This occurred as a result of an in utero positional deformity.

Figure 5.10. In the same infant as shown in Figure 5.9 the left temporal depression was due to pressure of the baby's left foot on the fetal skull in utero.

Figure 5.11. This very common finding of folding of the ear lobe occurs as a result of a postural deformity.

Figure 5.12. In this infant the same type of postural deformity is noted demonstrating that this occurs as a result of the shoulder pressing up against the ear lobe in utero. In general, over 90% of congenital postural deformities correct spontaneously.
