Double extradural hematomas (DEDH) comprise 2-10% of all extradural hematomas (EDH). The ipsilateral occurrence of more than one EDH is quite uncommon. We are reporting a case of ipsilateral DEDH in a 10-year-old child following a head injury. Though DEDH is extremely lethal and a rare diagnosis, ipsilateral DEDH is still uncommon. Furthermore, the occurrence of EDH in the pediatric age group is quite unusual. As compared to single EDHs, DEDH should be considered more urgently for neurosurgical intervention.
