Sinus pericranii (SP) is a rare, generally benign venous varix in extra cranial location that is connected to intracranial venous system. In this study, we will share our experience with five cases of sinus pericranii operated at our institute along with considerations of preoperative surgical risk. In this study, two cases of Sinus pericranii with associated craniosynostosis were not included. Out of 5 patients in this study, 4 patients were of congenital origin and another with history of trauma. The study population consisted of three male and two female. There were three children with age of 11, 18 and 36 months. Other two were young adults (one male and other female). One child was referred to us in hemodynamically unstable condition after wrongly diagnosed and operated as epidermoid cyst. All five sinus pericranii patients were operated with excellent results. We will share our experience with these five cases followed by a review of literature.
