Abstract

Epidural hematoma is a serious complication of head injury and it may cause important morbidity and mortality. Although the traditional treatment is surgery, cases of spontaneous resolution with close follow-up have also been reported. The underlying pathophysiology of this spontaneous resolution has been the subject of several theories. The patients who can be treated conservatively while being closely monitored are those who have minor, asymptomatic epidural hematomas. This article will discuss a 25-year-old male patient with spontaneous resolution after about 5 hours.
