Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two cases of relapsing juvenile chronic subdural hematoma with late relapse in adult life are presented and the literature reviewed. Both patients contracted subdural hematoma early in life; its persistence resulted in characteristic skull deformitites. The patients led an asymptomatic life until a second head trauma caused rebleeding into the old hematoma sac with recurring symptoms and signs. The source of rebleeding is the outer subdural membrane. Radiographic features vary, depending on the location and size of the subdural hematoma. The significance of localized thickening of the cranium is stressed in refining the differential diagnosis.
