Sphenofrontal suture

The sphenofrontal suture is a cranial suture where the frontal bone meets the sphenoid bone bilaterally. From an anterior perspective of the skull, this suture appears in the roof of the bony orbits. From a lateral perspective, it appears as the meeting of the inferoposterior edges of the frontal bone and the anterior, superior edge of the greater wing of the sphenoid bone. It fuses at approximately 15 years of age.
