Context

Context of (Ununited) Depressed fracture of the left parietal bone. There is a depressed fracture 5.5cm long in the left parietal parallel to the inter-parietal suture and 6cm from it and 2cm distant from the parieto-frontal. The fracture was probably made by a single blow of a sharp instrument; two fragments are depressed 8cm from the outer surface; the upper fragment has a breadth of 1cm the lower fragment 6cm. The upper fragment is slightly longer than the lower. From within fragments of the internal table of slightly larger size are seen. They each have a breadth of 1cm and a length of 5cm. They are depressed so as to form an angle of 90 degrees with each other. The fractured edges are separated by an interval of about 4cm through which the diploe is seen but owing to the contact of the framents of the outer table there is no opening through the skull. The depressed portions of hte internal table maintain with the sound bone
