Abstract

Spontaneous drainage of extradural hematoma (EDH) through a skull fracture is rare, with only 14 cases reported to date. Five of these belong to pediatric age group. The authors report two cases of spontaneous evacuation of acute EDH, in children, with two differing types of skull fractures, one being an elevated fracture. The context, in which the terminologies of “spontaneous evacuation” and “spontaneous resolution” to be used, is clarified.
