correlated with the two bony tegmen defects. We placed a dural graft substitute intradurally to cover the middle cranial fossa. The temporalis fascia graft was placed extradurally over the tegmen defects. Postoperatively, interval CT scans showed a progressive decrease in the volume of her pneumocephalus. In the week after discharge, the patient developed a recurrence of positional headaches and underwent head magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which demonstrated bilateral subdural hematomas (SDHs) with no residual pneumocephalus ( Fig. 2A and B ). This constellation of

the left side with a GCS score of 7T. The right pupil was reactive and 2 mm, and the left pupil was ovoid and unreactive. A CT of the head revealed small bilateral subdural hematomas, a right frontal contusion, and bifrontal skull fractures with a right orbital roof blowout fracture with herniation of the superior rectus muscle and brain through the orbital defect. A concomitant right lower-extremity fracture that would ultimately require surgical fixation was also present. A left frontal fiber optic intracranial pressure monitor was placed uneventfully on his
