ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Bilateral subacute (isodense) subdural hematomas

History: 92 year old man presents with confusion. On coumadin for "irregular heart beat" according to son.

Findings: • Isodense subdural hematomas. • The venticles are compressed and obviously much smaller than would be expected in a 92 year old man. • The cerebral cortical sulci are also obliterated. • There is no midline shift because the bilateral extra-axial collections are approximately equal in volume

Ddx: • Subdural empyema • Lymphoma • Intracranial hypotension

Dxhow: CT scan

Exam: non-contributory

No MeSH data available.


There is no evidence of midline shift. Ventricles appear symmetric and of normal size - for a young person.  Note the apparent lack of sulci and small size of ventricles are inconsistent with age in this 92 year old man.  Arrows indicate the margin of the brain.
