Sinus pericranii

J Neurosurg. 1975 Jun;42(6):704-12. doi: 10.3171/jns.1975.42.6.0704.


Five cases of sinus pericranii are presented, four congenital and one traumatic. All five cases were successfully treated with extirpation and reinforcement with Gelfoam and silk thread over the skull openings. The literature on this rare symptom-complex is reviewed and a new definition of sinus pericranii proposed.
