Abstract

Intracranial extradural hematoma (EDH) is a frequent lesion but simultaneous occurrence of EDH with orbital subperiosteal hematoma following head injury is a rare event. We report a 22 year old male who sustained head injury during road traffic accident. Glasgow coma scale was 13/15 on arrival and he had left orbital ecchymosis & subconjunctival hemorrhage. CT revealed left frontal extradural hematoma with associated orbital subperiosteal hematoma. No bone fracture was seen. The patient had good clinical recovery following surgical evacuation of the hematomas.
