PMID:  3601025     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Presented is a single case of a 6-year-old child in whom a closed depressed skull fracture was found to be elevated spontaneously less than 2 days after the injury. There were no cosmetic or neurological sequelae at follow-up. This case demonstrates that these injuries do not always require operation and that they occasionally resolve spontaneously, even in school-age children.
