“…In this circular type of defect, the lesion is usually confined to the skin (Abt, 1917;Anderson and Novy, 1942;Calloway et al, in this case) and may penetrate to the dura (Kehrer, 1910 1930). In a case described by Terruhn, the defect was symmetrical and extended through the skin, periosteum and bone to the cerebral membranes and allowed the convolutions of the brain to be clearly seen.…”
