Abstract

The clinical histories, physical examinations and results of head computed tomography and head ultrasound scans were reviewed in a group of 15 infants who had macrocrania, excessive extra-axial fluid and normal development. Diagnostic evaluations demonstrated mild ventriculomegaly and extra-axial fluid collections. No treatment was undertaken. All infants continued to exhibit normal development during a period of extended follow-up. In this select group of infants exhibiting these findings, treatment appears to be unnecessary and the prognosis for continued normal development is excellent.
