Wow! Are those staples?
Hydrocephalus with VP shunt. I'd like to buy a CT please!
Patient had a Craniotomy or trepanation, because he had a depressed skull fracture? The tubes are drainage tubes (hemovac).
VP or VA shunt (there is only one tube), Craniectomy with visible bone flap in parieto-occipital area, pneumogram from surgery
appears to be a injured skull with staples and leakage or bruse.
My guess is there was a accident and they put stapples in and had to put a drain in also. Please let us know. Also did you do the work?
I am a midwife Sanjay- so perineums are my thing- but I am pretty sure it is a VP shunt.
could it be piercings!?? long thingy, maybe an endoscope....

I would agree with shunt
A brain tumor? Or could be a hematoma(blood pooling underneath the tissue).
The white arrow is pointing to the nose. I think it's a bad nose job that had to be corrected!
Tumor removal, with a permanent shunt to drain csf
Skull looks like it's been trepanned with a a skewer or probe inserted.Shunts?Or is it a South American Indian trepanned skull- to let out evil spirits- that went terribly wrong.
