Chronic subdural hematoma (SDH) is one of the most common types of traumatic intracranial hemorrhage and occurs more commonly in older patients. Although the potential for recovery from chronic SDH is very high, unusual intracranial hematomas may complicate the postoperative cause. Here, we describe an extremely rare case of contralateral acute SDH developed after a burr-hole trephination and closed-system drainage for chronic SDH in a 62-year-old male. We also review previous reports and discuss the possible pathophysiological mechanisms of this rare complication.
Key Words: Chronic subdural hematomaㆍContralateral acute subdural hematomaㆍPostoperative complication
