Abstract

Chronic subdural haematoma (CSDH) commonly 
refereed as the great mimicker and it is a slow 
evolving blood collection located between the dura 
and the arachnoid layer which is surrounded by a 
capsule. It mainly affects elderly male individuals. 
Computerized tomography scan of the brain is the 
investigation of choice and surgery is the mainstay 
of treatment. Recurrence of CSDH is the most 
common complication and this is an important point 
in neurosurgical parlance and accounts for 10- 
20% of post-operative complications
