Metrics details. Rapid spontaneous resolution of traumatic acute subdural hematoma is an infrequent phenomenon and mainly develops in a case of simple acute subdural hematoma without parenchymal contusion. However, it has been rarely reported in a pediatric case with severe initial head injury. A 7-year-old Asian girl with traumatic acute subdural hematoma was transferred to our hospital for an emergency operation based on the results of an initial computed tomography scan and neurological examination. However, a repeat computed tomography scan two hours after trauma disclosed considerable reduction of the hematoma and midline shift with neurological improvements.

CT image shows diffuse subarachnoid hemorrhage in all basal cisterns, bilateral sylvian fissures and inter-hemispheric fissure with a component of left subdural hematoma. Control CT 5 days after shows partial absorption of the subarachnoid hemorrhage with a decrease in attenuation coefficient compared to the first study. This case shows a subarachnoid hemorrhage with a subdural hemorrhage component. We see a favorable evolution with reabsorption of the hemorrhage and without signs of complications. In the evolution of intracranial hemorrhage on computed tomography, we expect a decrease of the blood density of 1. Updating… Please wait. Unable to process the form.
Rapid resolution of acute subdural hematoma in child with severe head injury: a case report
Subdural hematomas are recognized by their crescent shape overlying and compressing the brain. In the acute stage, blood is bright on CT. Eventually in the chronic state, the blood turns dark. In the subacute stage, a variety of patterns can be seen.
Background: The authors present a case of delayed acute subdural hematoma and review all reported cases in the literature. The focus of this paper is to identify the subset of the population who are at risk, and determine whether they should be admitted for observation in the setting of mild traumatic brain injury. Case description: A year-old woman taking daily aspirin 81 mg had a fall with loss of consciousness. However, because of her postconcussive symptoms, computed tomography CT of the head was obtained, and the results were negative for any intracranial hemorrhage or fractures. She was admitted for workup.
