A case is presented where brain atrophy simulated bilateral subdural hematomas on scintiangiograms, static scintiphotographs and cerebral angiography. This study demonstrates that there are pitfalls in the evaluation of scintiangiograms and illustrates another cause of crescentric activity. © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
