Abstract

This case report describes computed tomographic findings of a three-month-old, 180 kg female Arabian foal that had suffered head trauma. Computed tomography proved valuable in antemortem diagnosis of skull base fracture and extradural hematoma, which were confirmed by postmortem examination.
