Hello. Growing fracture usually occurs to infants and children. It occurs when a simple linear skull fracture is associated with a dural tear. It can lead to a growing fracture or leptomeningeal cyst. This kind of fracture can develop even 6 months after the injury. As a result, there is a brain pulsating against this dural defect. This dural defect is usually larger than bone defect. You should talk to your kid’s doctor about the details. I hope everything will go well. Bye!
