Abstract

Growing skull fractures are a rare complication that is usually seen in head-injured children under the age of 3 years. Primer treatment is the repair of dural damage by surgery. Traditional treatment modalities may be inadequate in some complicated cases. Shunt treatment option should be kept in mind for these cases.
