Abstract

Background: A few hours after birth a newborn baby developed two soft well-defined bumps situated bilaterally on the posterior part of the parietal regions of the skull. The swellings were separated by the sagittal suture and do not cross the lambdoid suture. The infant was delivered vaginally in a head-first position after a full term pregnancy (G2A1P0) without complications. There was no prolonged labour nor use of forceps, vacuum extractor or other techniques of assisted delivery.
