Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Post traumatic leptomeningeal cysts (P.T.L.C.) are capsulated liquor collections in the sub-arachnoidal space consequent to skull fractures. They occur typically in infancy and their deceitful onset needs an accurate X-ray follow-up in children with a history of cranial trauma. The authors present six cases of P.T.L.C. encountered in the last three years, recall the mechanism of formation, and stress the importance of standard radiological examination, and computed tomography for early diagnosis.
