Abstract

A 71-year-old man developed a large multi-loculated subdural empyema following the evacuation of a chronic subdural haematoma. The pockets of pus were successfully evacuated endoscopically via the burr holes resulting in good recovery and no re-accumulation. The advantages of this technique and the difficulties encountered during this procedure are discussed.
