Figure 3: T2-weighted axial image of the magnetic resonance imaging of brain showing a large calvarial defect noted in the left parietal bone and part of posterosuperior temporal bone with thinned out and eroded margins. There is evidence of herniation of a large area of encephalomalacic tissue (having signal intensity equal to cerebrospinal fluid) through the defect into the subgaleal region of scalp and having internal communication with the left lateral ventricle. Moderate communicating ventriculomegaly is also noted
