Unusual resolution of a depressed skull fracture following repeat head trauma: The two-hit hypothesis?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An infant sustained a significant depressed skull fracture from a fall. Before the planned surgical repair of the fracture could be carried out, the child sustained a second fall that led to the complete resolution of the depressed fracture. Mechanisms to explain this unusual phenomenon are discussed.
