English Abstract

The traumatic cerebral contusions is a common clinical entity but its prognosis varies among patients. The frontal location contusions are vulnerable to rapid deterioration and resulting in severe elevated intracranial hypertension. In this situation, the intracranial pressure is controlled by therapeutic hypothermia and fully sedation of patient. We reported a case of delayed bifrontal contusions resulting in postoperative refractory intracranial hypertension. It is not controlled by therapeutic hypothermia and other medical measures. The continuous electroencephalography showed nonconvulsive status epilepsy exists. The condition was well improved after appropriated antiepileptic treatment.
