What are the short/long term effects of a hairline skull fracture. 3" in length from lambdoid suture forward toward the temporal bone.
Usually none: In an adult, the type of fracture you describe really has no long-term effects.

I can not estimate or predict if there is any neurological deficit untill after the first couple of months have passed. ...Read more
8-12 weeks: Each child is different. Some kids recover fast and some take a little more time. They should do an x-ray a few days down the road to make sure she is healing properly. I'm hoping they did a cat scan when it happened to make sure she didn't have any bleeding in her brain which is somewhat common after a skull fracture.Good luck. ...Read more
