'Puech B, Puech P-F, Dhellemmes P, Pellerin P, Lepoutre F, Tichy G, 1990: W.A. Mozart: Craniofacial Anomalies and Pathology. Anthropologie (Brno) 28, 1: 67-78'.
The skull owned by the Mozarteum shows two uncommon anomalies: a frontal dysmorphism and the print of an epidural haematoma in process of resolution. The first is noticeable on Mozart's portraits, the second probably went unnoticed at first but because of complications, might have contributed to the premature death of the musician.
