Epidural hematoma is a rare form of neonatal birth injury accounting for 2% of newborn intracranial hemorrhage. We report the first case of ultrasound-guided needle aspiration of a cranial epidural hematoma in a neonate who also suffered subgaleal and intraparenchymal hemorrhage as a complication of vacuum extraction.
