Abstract

We report a unique case of a neonate with an epidural hematoma induced by vacuum extraction. The epidural hematoma, communicating with a cephalhematoma through a linear skull fracture, disappeared after ultrasound-guided needle aspiration. The patient quickly recovered and one month later computed tomography revealed a complete resolution of the epidural hematoma.
