Head trauma is a frequent cause of mortality and morbidity in the pediatric population. Chronic subdural hematoma is the most common traumatic lesion in head injury. Chronic subdural hematomas are rare in children older than 2 years old; they are more frequent during adolescence. Calcified or ossified chronic subdural hematoma is a rare entity that usually presents as a space-occupying lesion over the cerebral convexity. Chronic calcified subdural hematomas are reported less than chronic subdural hematomas. In this article, we report a successfully treated patient with surgical removal case of calcified chronic subdural hematoma mimicking calvarial mass. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
