Tension pneumocephalus - a rare but treatable cause of rapid neurological deterioration in traumatic brain injury. A case report

EO Komolafe, E Faniran

Abstract


Pneumocephalus is a frequent complication following head injury and craniotomies. It can become an acute neurosurgical emergency when associated with raised intracranial pressure and neurological deterioration. Early diagnosis and timely appropriate intervention will reduce morbidity and unnecessary mortality from a case as this.
