PMID:  8322179     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Presence of air in acute extradural hematomas has been described by several authors. Little attention has been paid to its significance. We report six pediatric patients with air-containing extradural hematomas. A fracture involving air-containing structures in either anterior or middle cranial fossa was detected on computed tomographic scans of all patients. The pertinent literature was reviewed.
