Infantile chronic subdural hematoma with local protrusion of the skull in a case of osteogenesis imperfecta.

Author information

Department of Neurosurgery, Odawara Municipal Hospital, Kanagawa, Japan.


Osteogenesis imperfecta with infantile chronic subdural hematoma is extremely rare and has not been previously described in the literature. Our patient was a baby girl suffering from osteogenesis imperfecta tarda (Type I) who had an acute subdural hematoma at birth and who developed a progressive chronic subdural hematoma with local protrusion of the overlying skull. She was treated surgically with a good result. This rare complication is due to weakness of an insufficiently calcified skull, which is peculiar to this disorder of bone and connective tissue development.
