Chronic subdural hematoma in children.

Author information

Department of Neurosurgery, University of Texas Southwestern, Children's Medical Center at Dallas, USA.


Chronic subdural hematoma (CSH) is generally a disease affecting the elderly and infants. In infants, the process is particularly confusing and frequently misunderstood. In the pediatric population, CSH is just one of a group of sometimes related conditions known as extracerebral fluid collections. In the past, extracerebral fluid collections, in general, and CSHs, in particular, have been inaccurately or incompletely described. Modern neuroimaging techniques, however, have greatly advanced our understanding of these conditions. Surprisingly little literature exists on the subject, and publications before the advent of modern computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging should be interpreted with caution.
