We report a rare case of an acute epidural hematoma (EDH) due to solitary skull metastasis in a 60-year-old patient treated earlier for ovarian carcinoma. The patient presented with head injury followed by unconsciousness and computerized tomography showed a large EDH in the right parietal region along with a contusion of left temporal-parietal lobe and subarachnoid hemorrhage in left sylvian fissure. Emergency craniotomy and evacuation of the EDH was performed and the hemorrhage was determined to be secondary to skull metastasis of ovarian carcinoma; the patient recovered and received whole brain radiation therapy.
