We report two cases of chronic calcified and ossified subdural empyema diagnosed during surgery and operated on successfully using an extraordinary large osteoplastic craniotomy. After surveying the literature, we must emphasize the unusual occurrence of the chronic subdural empyemas presenting with calcification-ossification and large size as observed in both of our cases.
