Abstract

EDH incidence in society is common and can be life saving if timely intervened. Its incidence is more in male and the most common site is temporoparietal region (85%). A collection of 15 ml of blood in the substantial space results in severe functional disturbance. We have managed 128 cases during one year. 10 cases were managed conservatively. We recommend urgent surgical intervention as size of EDH is increasing and it can be fatal for life if delayed.
