Distant extradural haematoma complicating removal of frontal tumours.
  1. E J Sinar,
  2. K W Lindsay

    Abstract

    The authors report two patients who developed occipito-parietal extradural haematomas following removal of large frontal meningiomas. In both, CT scanning aided diagnosis and subsequent management. Although rare, this complication should be considered when patients deteriorate or fail to improve after removal of frontally situated tumours or inexplicable brain swelling is encountered at the time of original surgery.
