The traditional approach of it's treatment is urgent surgery in haematomas with a mass effect. The researchers in this article present a case study of a 19 year old man who sustained a head trauma and presented with Glasgow Coma Scale score of 9 to the hospital. CT scan revealed a right hemispheric ASDH and a marked midline shift. MRI on the fifth day showed mild subarachnoidal hemorrhage. He was discharged from the hospital on the tenth day with excellent neurological condition.
