Neurosurgery

70 years old, male, previous falls 3 weeks ago. Headache, left hemiparesis (4/5) and dysarthria starting 5 days ago. Brain CT shows right hemisferic subacute subdural hematoma, brain compression and midline shift. We perform evacuation through burr holes. Please note that brain parenchyma and hematoma has similar density, so in some cases diagnosis may be overlooked.
