BOF: 117

A 36 year old male presents with a history of difficulty in walking, forgetfulness and inability to concentrate and urinary incontinence.

A few weeks prior to presentation he had been discharged from hospital where he had spent several weeks after he had suffered head injuries as a result of a car crash.

He had been otherwise fit and well and had not been on any medication.

On examination he had poor orientation in place, time and person and was unable to perform simple arithmetic. His gait was abnormal, as if he had forgotten how to walk.

In this patient the most likely diagnosis is:

a)       Chronic subdural haematoma

b)       Subarachnoid haemorrhage

c)       Extradural haematoma

d)       Post traumatic hydrocephalus

e)       Chronic traumatic encephalopathy
