Cephalohematoma with epidural hematoma(EDH) is a known complication of birth trauma and is usually best managed by observation only. However, this complication may jeopardize a neonatal life because of cranial compromise and hemodynamic instability. It should also be recognized that surgical intervention confers undoubted benefits on patients in some cases. We report a case of massive EDH with cephalohematoma and linear skull fracture, successfully treated with a craniotomy and evacuation of the hematoma.
