Florida Caput Succedaneum Attorney

Birth can be an extremely traumatic physical experience for mother and child. A common injury an infant might sustain is caput succedaneum, which is the swelling of a newborn’s scalp soon after delivery. The wound looks like a lump or bump on an infant’s head. This condition is usually caused by prolonged pressure from the dilated cervix or vaginal walls on the child’s scalp during the delivery process.

If your child was harmed as the result of medical malpractice, don’t hesitate to give our Florida birth injury attorneys a call. David C. Rash P.A. is dedicated to helping people seek justice on behalf of their children. Let us see what we can do for you.

Symptoms of Caput Succedaneum

The primary symptom of this condition is puffiness under the skin of the baby’s scalp. In this area, a child’s skin will be swollen and soft, and pressing on it can result in a dimple in the flesh. There may be some discoloration or bruising, but it shouldn’t be too extensive. Typically, the condition will resolve itself within a few days and doesn’t require treatment. However, because the bruising caused by caput succedaneum may break down into bilirubin, there is a heightened risk of an infant developing jaundice. Jaundice typically doesn’t post problems unless it goes untreated. If the condition is untreated, it could result in several medical issues, including brain damage and, in severe cases, death.
