Severe brain swelling during routine neurosurgery can herald serious consequences. Failure to control brain swelling despite adequate measures warns of a surgical cause and should be dealt efficiently. We report a case of an adult female who developed intraoperative acute subdural haematoma (SDH) and consequent intractable brain swelling during surgery of supratentorial arteriovenous malformation (AVM). Such a manifestation of contralateral acute SDH during supratentorial AVM surgery has not been reported earlier.
