Congenital depressions of the skull are rare in Western countries. The majority relate to obstetric trauma at delivery. We present a case of a congenital depression of a neonate's skull not relating to obstetric trauma. The child had an ovoid indentation behind the right coronal suture in the temperoparietal region. This skull depression was thought to relate to the position of her right hand in utero. We report her management, neuro-imaging and outcome on follow-up. A literature review is given in brief.
