Caption: Color-enhanced CT scan of the brain of a 6-month-old child, showing a subdural haematoma. This child was suspected of being a victim of child abuse and having suffered shaken baby syndrome. A subdural haematoma is a traumatic brain injury in which blood accumulates within the inner meningeal layer of the dura matter. They usually result from tears in veins that cross the subdural space. Subdural hematomas are usually the result of a traumatic head injury, when fast changing velocities within the skull may stretch and tear small bridging veins. Subdural haemorrhage is a classic finding in shaken baby syndrome.
