Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Eleven children with solitary radiotranslucency of the skull are presented. All the lesion proved to be benign. In the frontal and parietal lesions the pre-operative appearances on the plain skull X-ray films was sufficient to enable the diagnosis to be made. In the case of the midline occipital lesions several laboratory investigations appeared necessary in order to make the correct diagnosis and decide on the indications for operation. In such instances a variety of pathological entities was demonstrated at operation.
