Delayed post-operative contralateral epidural hematoma in a patient with right-sided acute subdural hematoma
: A case report.
Thrombocytopenia could be considered a risk factor for the development of a spontaneous acute subdural hematoma
of arterial origin with more rapid and aggressive evolution (4).
Following the paraclinical investigations we established that 12 patients had intracranial lesions, 5 of which were hemorrhagic brain contusions, 3 small subdural blood collections, 2 cases of traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhages, 1 acute subdural hematoma
and 1 intraventricular hemorrhage.

The differential diagnosis for extra-axial masses on CT is the following: acute subdural hematoma
; epidural hematoma; foreign body; meningioma; meningeal metastases; dural sinus thrombosis; cortical venous thrombosis; neurosarcoidosis; lymphoma; tuberculosis; dural A-V fistula; and rarely, extramedullary hematopoiesis; leukemia; venous varix; hemangiopericytoma; and malignant tumor.
