Subgaleal hematoma, also known as subaponeurotic hemorrhage, is a serious complication of birth that is associated with vacuum-assisted delivery. Despite a high rate of mortality associated with subgaleal hematoma, it has received relatively little attention in the medical literature. Lack of awareness may lead to delayed diagnosis and serious consequences for infants. This paper is a report of six cases and a literature review. Prevention and early recognition and treatment of the condition can occur only with increased practitioner awareness of this entity.
