Case Study
The article focuses on the case of a 45-year-old woman diagnosed with subdural hematoma. The patient complained of left-sided headache for 5 years, experiencing progressive, painless loss of vision initially in her left eye and then the right eye. Based on computer tomography, a hypo density on the left cerebral convexity was seen. The author says this case highlights the need for careful pre-operative assessment and the significance of differential diagnosis in straight forward presentations.
