Chronic subdural hemorrhage (teaching)

Discussion:

This case is a good illustration of a chronic subdural hemorrhage.

In confused patients, particularly the elderly or inebriated, you may struggle to get a consistent history and due to the delay in presentation, there may be little to no external evidence of trauma. This is one of the reasons why CT head is part of the "confusion screen".
