This patient fell and hit his head whilst rehabilitating following a craniotomy for excision of a 4th ventricle epyndymoma.
He had bilateral fixed dilated pupils and a GCS of 4, with loss of airway tone and reflexes. He was rapidly intubated and transferred to the operating theater for emergency craniotomy with evacuation of the subdural hematoma.
