Other problems to be considered include the following:
- Accidental trauma (eg, subdural hematoma, especially in children with enlarged extra-axial spaces)
- Arteriovenous malformation
- Bleeding disorders
- Connective tissue disorder (ie, osteogenesis imperfecta)
- Infectious subdural effusion
- Metabolic disorders, especially glutaric aciduria type 1 (can cause retinal hemorrhages and intracranial lesions)
