Calcific density mass in the left parietal region, which is contiguous with the parietal bone.
It partly parallels the periosteum, in keeping with being contained by it.
Cephalohaematomas are traumatic subperiosteal haematomas that are usually caused by birth injury.
These haematomas are bound by the periosteum and therefore cannot cross sutures. A proportion of them will calcify over time.
Active intervention is rarely if ever required.
