Macrocephaly, or increased head circumference, is when the measured distance around the widest part of the skull is larger than expected for the child's age and background. Potential causes include Canavan disease, Hurler syndrome, hydrocephalus (congenital, post-traumatic, or obstructive), intracranial bleeding and Morquio syndrome.
