Growing skull fracture

What is a Growing skull fracture

This is a rather rare complication of linear skull fractures, usually occurring in children younger than 3 years of age.

Because of brain and CSF pulsations, the opposing edges of bone along the fracture do not fuse.

Resorption of bone along the edges occurs so that the fracture opening progressively enlarges, producing a “growing skull fracture.”
