Bleed next to brain: Subdural hematoma is bleeding between the inner and middle layers of the tissues wrapping the brain. It can be secondary to trauma or occur spontaneously, especially in patients with significant brain atrophy. Depending on size and rate of growth they can often be managed conservatively, but sometimes require neurosurgical drainage.
