Abstract :

Objective: Study of natural history of significant extra dural haematoma resolution. Background: Traumatic ain injury is one of the leading causes of death. There are various modes of injury like road traffic accident, assault, fall and others. The traumatic ain injury can range from scalp laceration to intracranial haemorrhage. The line of management is decided upon considering several factors like age, co morbidities, Glasgow coma scale neurodeficiency, CT scan findings, other associated injury. Case report: A 24–year–old gentleman sustained head injury following road traffic accident. CT scan (head) was suggestive of extradural haematoma. Patient was subjected to decompressive craniotomy and evacuation of extra dural haematoma. On 2nd post–operative day, CT Scan (head) was done which was suggestive of right frontal and right posterior parietal extra dural haematoma. The relatives did not give consent for surgery .Conservative management was done. Patient improved and haematoma resolved. A 42 year old male presented to the emergency with history of head injury . CT Scan was suggestive of extra dural haematoma. Conservative management was done as surgery was refused by the relatives. Patient was monitored. Patient was asymptomatic after discharge and during follow up period. Conclusion: We report two unusual cases of extradural haematoma with a good outcome and uneventful follow up period.
