Cranial epidural hematoma represents a hemorrhage between the dura mater and the inner table of the skull, with focal and global neurologic deficits being common effects. Alteration in consciousness is a hallmark. They typically arise as a consequence of head trauma (even sometimes minor trauma) and have an overlying skull fracture, but can also rarely occur postoperatively as a result of overdrainage of spinal fluid during surgery.
