Skull Fracture


Fractures of the skull bone (cranium) can occur after a mild or severe head injury. A skull fracture may be associated with no symptoms or a mild headache. Other factors can be followed by concussion syndromes or more severe brain injury. An open skull fracture is one in which the overlying skin has also been opened up. A depressed skull fracture is when one of the bony fragments is compressing the brain structures.
