Dear Dr Vedan. Probably you meant compound fracture of skull.Major traumatic head injury and not compound head injury. Multiple fracture frontal temporal and parietal bone with significant subgslual swelling. Blood in the interhemispheric fissure left sylvian fissure lateral ventricle and 4th ventricleand tentorium cetebelli. Tiny dot like hyoerdensitity diffusely in the patenchyma left temporal and frontal more suggestive of hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. Treatment point of view nothing much to offer.
