Dr. Sana Khan [2] | Dr Mudasir Amin | Dr. Rukhsana Najeeb [2]

Abstract: An epidural hematoma (EDH) is an extra-axial collection of blood within the potential space between the outer layer of the dura mater and the inner table of the skull. It is confined by the lateral sutures (especially the coronal sutures) where the dura inserts. It is a life-threatening condition, which may require immediate intervention and can be associated with significant morbidity and mortality if left untreated. Rapid diagnosis and evacuation are important for a good outcome. The following case illustrates our own experience in the peri operative and post-operative management of a patient who had fall from 12 feet height , following which she developed EDH . The Patient was Operated and shifted to ICU for further management.
