Headache.

Patient Data

Age: 75 years
Gender: Male

Bilateral acute on chronic cerebral convexity subdural haematomas. Right anterior parafalcine hypodense subdural haematoma. Mass effect causes effacement of underlying sulci and rightward midline shift at the level of the septum pellucidum. No tonsillar or transtentorial herniation is seen at time of scanning.

Grey-white matter differentiation is preserved. Ill-defined white matter hypoattenuation within the right frontal lobe likely relates to previous ischaemia. No hydrocephalus.
