Cutis Verticis Gyrata (Congenital Anomaly Type). Presented by Dr. John F. Madden, St. Paul.
This schoolboy, aged 6 years, has had a large mass on the anterior half of the right side of the scalp which has gradually increased in size since birth. The lesion was smooth, not elevated, slate blue and hairless at birth. He was born at full term by normal delivery, and was breast fed. He has had no convulsions or other unusual conditions of childhood. The mass on the head has grown rapidly during the past year, and this has been accompanied by glandular enlargement in the submaxillary and postauricular regions.There are no abnormalities in the family history.The lesion consists of parallel folds running anteroposteriorly and covering the greater part of the anterior half of the right side of the scalp. The folds are thicker in the middle of the lesion and taper off
