Cranial defects result either from trauma or after intentional osteocraniotomies or external decompression craniectomies. These lead to mechanical vulnerability of the brain, esthetic disfigurement, and transmission of vibrations and pulsation of the brain that cause disconcerting sensations to the patient. Subsequent cranioplasty may be required to compensate for the defect and alleviate various signs and symptoms. A referred posttraumatic patient of a cranial defect that was restored with an alloplastic heat polymerizing methyl methacrylate cranial implant is presented in this case report.
