Case Study
Subdural hematoma is a rare cause of secondary parkinsonism. In this study, we present a case of parkinsonian syndrome caused by a bilateral subdural haematoma. The patient's parkinsonism symptoms completely disappeared following successful surgical removal of the hematoma without any anti-parkinson drug.
