Abstract

Computed tomography images of the subdural and epidural hematoma are well defined, crescent and lentiform shapes, respectively. However, it has been reported that both of them might mimic each other in rare instances. Literature reveals seven reports subdural hematoma mimicking epidural. We are reporting a new case of subdural hematoma mimicking epidural hematoma radiologically, which occurred after evacuation of chronic subdural hematoma with burr-hole in a 75 years old man.
