Abstract

Two patients suffered minor head injuries diagnosed as cerebral concussions. Both had normal CTs in the emergency room but developed progressive neurologic symptoms weeks later. Both had large subdural hematomas requiring surgical drainage. Physicians should be alert for neurologic deterioration in patients with minor head injuries, even after normal CTs.
