Extradural haematomas can be managed operatively or conservatively. An expanding extradural haematoma can cause rapid neurological deterioration, and immediate surgery is indicated if there is significant or ongoing neurological deficit. Conservative management may be suitable if the haematoma is small and the patient is neurologically intact. In this case, the haematoma is large but the patient is neurologically intact. The risks of surgery must be balanced against the risk of deterioration from conservative management.
