Variations and abnormalities of skull appearance and shape are generally related to a primary maldevelopment of the brain. The copper-beaten skull appearance is typically associated with craniosynostosis, where premature fusion of the cranial bone sutures results in the growing brain exerting pressure on the malleable cranium, producing a pattern known as the beaten silver appearance or copper-beaten skull appearance. In this article, we have reported a case of 5-year-old child with classical features of beaten silver skull.
