PMID:  19834739     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A newborn presented on day 15 of life with an epidural hematoma, extending through a diastatic sutura squamosa in an external cephalhematoma. There was no skull fracture. The cephalhematoma was punctured twice with 24-h interval, reducing both the cephalhematoma and the epidural component. In the absence of neurological signs or symptoms, aspirating a cephalhematoma to evacuate the communicating epidural hematoma in a newborn infant may avoid more invasive surgical intervention.
