Two cases of traumatic interhemispheric subdural hematoma are reported. The first patient had combined convexity and parasagittal subdural lematomas; the second patient had an interhemispheric subdural hematoma vhich extended over the tentorium. Although most reported cases have 'ollowed a subacute clinical course with characteristic lower-extremity nonoparesis, both our patients deteriorated rapidly 24 and 48 hours after the njury without warning neurologic signs and died in spite of prompt surgical; reatment. Both cases were diagnosed with computerized axial tomography CT). This examination is particularly valuable in defining the extent of the lematoma and its possible association with other lesions.
