Epidural hematoma is relatively rare in newborn infants and frequently associated with instrumental deliveries or other complications during labor and delivery. Although surgical evacuation has been the most common therapy, many other procedures have been described. Although many epidural hematomas require surgical evacuation rather than nonsurgical management, conservative or aspiration of hematoma have been attempted. In the case of EDH associated with cephalhematoma, aspiration of cephalhematoma could be attempted because frequent features of these combination were communication between these hematoma. We report a case of successful nonsurgical management of epidural hematoma through the aspiration of accompanying cephalhematoma in a 5-day-old newborn infant.
