AbstractHydrocephalus occurs more often in brachycephalic individuals of different species. Detailed analysis of rostral cranial fossa–region of cerebrospinal fluid outflow–is necessary to understand causes leading to hydrocephalus in specimens with shortened skull. The objective of the study was to determine morphology and morphometry of rostral cranial fossa in brachycephalic dogs. Skulls of 126 dogs of different breeds and morphotypes were examined using computed tomography. Linear and volumetric measurement in the region of rostral cranial fossa and skull base were made. In brachycephalic dogs there is shortening of rostral cranial fossa which is linked with the volume reduction of this region. There are differences in skull base shape between brachycephalic dogs and other morphotypes. Similarities between brachycephalic dogs and patients with craniosynostoses were noted.
