Abstract

102 children treated surgically for intracranial extradural haematoma from 1982 to 1991 were evaluated retrospectively and their prognosis was compared with 387 adults treated during the same period. Children had a better prognosis than adults even with a low Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score at surgery. Children had a higher incidence of frontal and posterior fossa haematomas. The GCS score and the associated parenchymal injuries had a strong correlation with the outcome both in adult and children, whereas the site of haematoma had no correlation with the final outcome.
