Pediatrician 's  Response
Dear beautifullcandy I am sorry to hear about your son. It appears your son had
head injury and bruises and collection of blood under the skin of the scalp.(haematoma)
I think you should take your child to paeditric orthopaedic surgeon for check up.
The delayed effect of head injury may occur. The paediatric orthopaedic surgeon will
give you appropriate advise. kindest regards Dr. S.K.Mukherjee
