1/2. Diphenylhydantoin induced granulocytopenia following a seizure prophylaxis after a depressed skull fracture.

    The article deals with a rare case of granulocytopenia following a seizure prophylaxis after a severe head injury. Although fatal complications like the one described occur extremely seldom, we want to emphasize the necessity of regular controls during the critical time period between the 10th and the 67th day of diphenylhydantoin treatment. The blood level should not exceed 10-20 micrograms/ml to prevent any toxic reaction to the myelopoetic system. If this treatment cannot be provided, we suggest to administer clonazepam or Convulex.

2/2. Posttraumatic subepicranial varix.

    Two cases of subepicranial varix following injury are reported. They were associated with depressed skull fractures. Subepicranial varix is a rare and benign scalp mass, and should be differentiated from vascular anomalies of the scalp and cystic masses of the scalp communicating with the cerebrospinal space. The relationship between subepicranial varix and sinus pericranii is discussed.
