Context

Context of (Fissured-ununited) Calvaria. Transverse fracture of the vault. The fracture may be traced from the squamous portion of the left temporal through the parietals, crossing the saggital suture close to the occipital bone into which the fracture passes behind the temporal bone. The skull is very thin. From a young man who fell on the sidewalk. There was no external wound. Symptoms of compression occurred without reaction and death occurred 12 hours after the accident. In addition to the course of the fracture as descried, the fracture was found to pass as far as the left external auditory meatus. A clot of blood displaced the dura mater under the parietal bones
