<< Cutis verticis gyrata >>

 

 

 

Hi Atnaw ,

 

If you type in those words into Google you will find lots of reading about it. This came up on one article.

Wikipedia

"Cutis verticis gyrata or CVG for short, is a superficial condition usually associated with thickening of the scalp. Sufferers show visible folds, ridges or creases on the surface of the top of the scalp. The number of folds can vary from 2 to roughly 10. The folds are typically soft and spongy cannot be corrected with pressure. The color of the skin is not affected."

 

The condition typically affects the central and rear regions of the scalp, but sometimes can involve the entire scalp.

 

 

Take care, Everyone.

atnaw,

This is a new one! Here's the eMedicine.com website on cutis verticis gyrata. To see images of it you can google it and click on "images" at the top of the page. I couldn't find a website dedicated specifically to it.

 

Big Hugs,
