Subgaleal hematoma secondary to hair braiding in a 31-month-old child.

A 31-month-old African American girl who presented with subgaleal hematoma (SGH) a day after having her hair braided. This hematoma was managed conservatively with resolution in 2 weeks. Subgaleal hematoma secondary to hair braiding is very uncommon. Being aware that hair braiding is a potential cause of SGH is very important so as to avoid unnecessary investigations, interventions, and reports to child protective services. A review of the literature, potential complications, and management of SGH has been described here.
