Good outcome following emergency decompressive craniectomy in a case of malignant middle cerebral artery infarction in a 14-month-old infant.


:We report the case of a 14-month-old infant presenting with unresponsiveness and seizure following thoracic surgery. Imaging showed full territory left middle cerebral artery infarct and signs of raised intracranial pressure (ICP) that required emergency decompressive craniectomy (DC). The child made a good functional recovery. We discuss the case.
