Treatment of cranial epidural hematoma in a neonate by needle aspiration of a communicating cephalhematoma

Koenraad Smets UGent and Dimitri Vanhauwaert (2010) EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF PEDIATRICS. 169(5). p.617-619
abstract
A newborn presented on day 15 of life with an epidural hematoma, extending through a diastatic sutura squamosa in an external cephalhematoma. There was no skull fracture. The cephalhematoma was punctured twice with 24 hours interval, reducing both the cephalhematoma and the epidural component. Conclusion: In the absence of neurological signs or symptoms, aspirating a cephalhematoma to evacuate the communicating epidural hematoma in a newborn infant may avoid more invasive surgical intervention.
