Calcification of cephalhematomas is an uncommon complication of cephalhematoma in children. Larger size hematomas can cause cosmetic deformity, may lead to significant deformity of the inner table of skull and craniosynostosis which may require surgical intervention. We present a case of a 1-year-old male child who presented with the history of scalp swelling over the right parietal region since birth. There were no neurological complaints or deficits. Computed tomographic scan of the brain showed an expansile lesion involving the right parietal bone. As the child was not symptomatic for the mass, we decided to follow him at regular intervals.
