We present a case of tension pneumocephalus after burr hole evacuation of bilateral chronic subdural hematomas. Subsequent treatment was effected with combined twist drill closed system drainage and continuous intrathecal infusion of a physiological solution. The clinical entity, tension pneumocephalus, and the use of continuous subarachnoid infusion and drainage as a method of cerebral reexpansion are discussed.
