Delayed posttraumatic intracranial lesions in children

Pediatr Neurosurg. 1991-1992;17(1):25-9. doi: 10.1159/000120562.

Abstract

Three patients with delayed posttraumatic intracranial hematoma (2 intracerebral and 1 extradural) are described, together with a review of the literature on possible etiologies. Close monitoring of the patient with craniocerebral trauma is essential to avoid a fatal outcome and to repeat neuroradiological studies when warranted.
