Hello. My son recently had a CT scan and in the 3D picture of his head, there were a bunch of tiny holes and dents at the back of the skull. He’s 8 months old and suffers from Hydrocephulus (recently diagnosed along with CT & MRI scan) does anyone know what it might be? Doctors didn’t seem to know what it could be.

The description you gave is not very specific and punched out holes are usually seen in multiple myeLoma on plane skull x-ray however the age does not fit as multiple myeloma is basically a disease of the old individual. Another possibility is crew court appearance in thalassemia You may upload an image of the CT report to comment further and advise accordingly
