Abstract

 

We present a case of a previously healthy young adult who had acute spontaneous subdural hematoma. Headache and nausea were initially present and shortly followed by distortion of consciousness with a mydriasis of the left pupil and right sided hemiparesis in neurological status that shortly resulted in patient becoming comatose. CT scan was the main diagnostic device. Symptoms resolved with surgical craniotomy and evacuation. We explored the risk factors and the ways for the onset of spontaneous acute subdural hematoma. Having previously excluded underlying diseases we explored how the normally healthy activities can provoke the spontaneous formation of subdural hematoma.
