Growing skull fracture is a rare complication of injury during infancy and childhood. About 90% of them occur in childhood under the age of 3 years. Growing skull fracture or leptomeningeal cyst was known to be formed through the bony erosion of fractured site by cerebrospinal fluid pulsation of the leptomeninges, impacted into the fractured bone by trauma. Most growing skull fractures are located in the parietal region. A growing fracture commonly presents as a progressive, often pulsatile, scalp mass that appears several months to years after head injury sustained during infancy or early childhood. The authors report a case of acute growing skull fracture in 4-year-old male patient, which developed 3 weeks after fall down injury.
Key Words: Growing skull fracture; Leptomeningeal cyst
