Delayed acute subdural hematoma (DASDH) is defined as late onset ASDH with the absence of any abnormal radiological and clinical findings at initial examination. Moreover, this entity is very rare in traumatic brain injury and its mechanism is still unclear. Recently, endoscopic surgery for ASDH has also been performed. In this case, we describe some considerations of the mechanism of DASDH and review previous literature and usefulness of endoscopic surgical procedure for ASDH.
