Abstract

The growing skull fracture represents a particular type of evolution of cranial fracture in young children, and has also been called leptomeningeal cyst. This rare fracture usually occurrs in the parietal region of the skull in infancy, and underlying dura tear is the single most important factor in the process. We are reporting a patient with a posttraumatic growing skull fracture that we have treated surgically.
