The finding of focal areas of increased echogenicity within the calvarium of neonates is extremely common. Because of the high incidence of intracranial hemorrhage in prematures, the differential diagnosis usually begins and ends with bleeding. However, many other unrelated diseases and entities can present with increased focal echogenicity and the authors have gathered such a series. The diseases are discussed in the relative order of frequency.
