We report a very rare case of epidural hematoma, which occurred in the right hemisphere during a left lateral ventricle tumor resection. A 37-year-old female patient underwent elective surgery for removal of a lateral ventricle meningioma. Intraoperatively, the patient suffered from acute brain swelling close half an hour after tumor removal. Numerous measures were taken to reduce the brain swelling. A remote epidural hematoma was confirmed by a CT scan. Complete excision of the tumor was achieved after removal of the epidural hematoma. The management of the case was discussed in this paper.
Key words: Brain swelling, epidural hematoma, lateral ventricle tumor resection.
