Abstract

Usually following traumatic brain injury, extradural hematoma (EDH) and subdural hematoma (SDH) appear in opposite locations, with EDH being a coup injury and SDH being a contrecoup injury. We present a case of 24-year-old male patient who had concomitant overlapping acute EDH and SDH requiring neurosurgical intervention and discuss the clinical relevance of these coexisting lesions. Concomitant overlapping EDH and SDH are uncommon lesions and need close observation and planned follow-up imaging.
