We present a neonate with cephalohematoma complicated by a linear skull fracture and STAPHYLOCOCCUS EPIDERMIDIS meningitis. Clinicians, especially neonatologists, should be aware that a cephalohematoma in the newborn infant with a history of vacuum-assisted delivery could be the origin or trigger point of the infection either as sepsis, meningitis or osteomyelitis. The utmost importance of screening studies should be emphasized in order to be aware of the pathogenic potential of cephalohematomas.
