Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Chronic subdural haematoma usually arises from a traumatic acute haemorrhage in the subdural space, frequently causing mass effect and consequent neurological decline. This lesion is mainly found over the cortical convexity and its evolution and surgical approach has been extensively studied. Nevertheless, inter-hemispheric chronic subdural haematoma is considered a rare lesion.
AIM AND CASE REPORT: This study reported a case of traumatic acute interhemispheric subdural haematoma, initially asymptomatic, and its evolution to a chronic symptomatic lesion, as well as the surgical approach employed. A brief review of the literature is presented with a discussion of the therapeutic options.
