The study was conducted at neurosurgical hospital in Baghdad depending on patient's case sheet data. The study was carried retrospectively. The patients from 1.1.2004 till 1.5.2005 were taken in consideration and we found 50 cases treated by surgical intervention and 12 cases treated conservatively. Patients with EDHs less than 0.5 cm were treated conservatively and those with postoperative EDHs of elective neurosurgical procedures in addition to incompletely filled patients’ files were excluded. All patients data were recorded including the demographic characteristics and clinical parameters: side, site and size of haematoma (maximum thickness). The study concluded that conservative treatment had a role in management of EDHs.
