Newborn with failure to progress during delivery due to dystocia who is now apneic

CT of caput succedaneum
Axial CT without contrast of the brain shows a cresenteric high-density fluid collection in the subcutaneous tissues of the right scalp that crosses suture lines and a cresenteric low-density fluid collection in the subcutaneous tissues of the left scalp that crosses suture lines. Intracranially, there is diffuse loss of gray matter-white matter differentiation secondary to diffuse cerebral edema.

The diagnosis was a left caput succedaneum and a right subgaleal hematoma in a patient with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy.
