Case contributed by Dr Matt Skalski

Presentation

Head trauma

Patient Data

Age: not applicable
Diagram

A parietal extradural hemorrhage is depicted, extending from, but not crossing, the sagittal and squamous sutures. There is an associated cranial fracture depicted next to the hemorrhage as well. 

The haematoma is classically lentiform ('lens') shaped.

Diagram

A parietal subdural hemorrhage is depicted, located between the arachnoid mater and meningeal (visceral) layer of the dura. Also depicted is a ruptured bridging cortical vein secondary to a non-fracturing cranial trauma, leading to the hemorrage in this location. Not that the hemorrhage is not limited by the sutural attachement of the dura, as it is subdural.  

Diagram

A hemorrhage within the subarachnoid space, secondary to rupture of a berry aneurysm in the lateral base of the calvarium is depicted. Note that the blood is not confined by sutures (extradural) and is not contained between dural layers (subdural).
