This case demonstrates the sensitivity of the frontal cerebral cortex to the effects of compression and the importance of cranioplasty to protect the underlying brain tissue. Although immediate cranioplasty might have prevented this complication, the risk of infection was a contraindication. The symptoms of cerebral compression should be diagnosed early and treated promptly and aggressively. Delayed cranioplasty is effective in reducing the progression of cerebral compression.
