Acute epidural hematoma caused by contrecoup head injury--case report.

A 50-year-old woman presented with a rare case of contrecoup epidural hematoma (EDH) associated with coup EDH. She was hit by a car while riding a bicycle, and struck the left parietal region of her head on the ground. She was dazed for a few minutes. On admission, she complained of nausea but exhibited no neurological deficits. Skull radiography revealed a linear fracture of the left temporal bone. Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated acute EDH in the right frontal region due to contrecoup injury, and thin EDH in the left temporal region due to coup injury. She vomited repeatedly after admission. She became lethargic and exhibited right hemiparesis. CT, taken 2 hours later, revealed enlargement of the left coup EDH, but no enlargement of the right contrecoup EDH. An emergent evacuation of the enlarged coup EDH was performed. Immediately after the operation, she became alert and the right hemiparesis subsided. The contrecoup EDH was conservatively treated, in the absence of enlargement. She was discharged 12 days after the injury without neurological deficits.
