Tales from the Trauma Service XIII.....
Every once in awhile you come across a radiographic finding that looks "just like in the book".
Young man falls from a second story window. Arrives somnolent but will awaken to voice. Multiple episodes of nausea and vomiting.
The images:

Small parenchymal bleed.

The classic radiographic appearance of an epidural hematoma. The neurosurgeon took him to the operating room for a decompressive craniotomy.
