Abstract

We report the case of a 48-year-old male who developed an acute subdural hematoma after transsphenoidal decompression of a pituitary adenoma followed by a lumbar drain to conservatively manage postoperative cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhoea. An attempt is made to discuss the risk factors. The need for constant monitoring, early imaging and prompt treatment is stressed. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
