ISDE (intracranial subdural empyema) is a potentially fatal disorder. Patients who have
had previous intracranial surgeries are more likely to develop ISDE. ISDE might be
challenging to identify due to its non-specific clinical appearance. We provide a rare
case of ISDE that mimicked a recurrent chronic subdural hematoma, underlining the
importance of obtaining early magnetic resonance imaging of the brain for early
diagnosis and treatment in order to achieve the best possible outcome.
