Abstract

A female neonate presented with cephalohematoma over the temporoparietal region on the right side. Computed tomography (CT) revealed the presence of an underlying epidural hematoma (EDH) and associated skull fracture with communication between the hematomas. Aspiration of the cephalohematoma was followed by reduction in the size of the EDH. CT revealed cure without the need for an operative procedure. Aspiration is indicated for neonatal EDH with mild symptoms and liquefied cephalohematoma.
