This a cross sectional study performed using electronic data base system to determine the outcomes of the study from patients whom following acute brain injury and being examined by CT scan techniques. Inclusion and exclusion criteria were retrieved and findings were reported according to analytic descriptive methodology. 120 patients were diagnosed having intracranial fluid collection and being evaluated by CT scan techniques. Sixty six patients (55%) affected by trauma etiology followed by strokes (26.0) detection. The age group between (21- 30) had the big distribution 55.0%, and regarding gender distribution, the study found that sixty eight male patients were affected more than women (70%). Most patients presented with variable neurological signs and most of them complained from headage (33.3%) whereas significant correlation was shown between degree of the severity and those with severe symptoms while the moderate degree were most commonly affected.
