Clival Subdural Hematoma after Drainage of Concomitant Intracranial and Spinal Cord Subdural Hematomas – Rare Case Report

Concomitant traumatic spinal cord and intracranial subdural hematomas associated with a retroclival hematoma are very uncommon. Their pathophysiology is not totally elucidated, but one hypothesis is the migration of the hematoma from the head to the spine. In the present case report, the authors des...
