Globular subdural hematoma in a shunt-treated infant

Case report

Takahiro Murata, Hiroaki Shigeta, Tetsuyoshi Horiuchi, Keiichi Sakai, and Kazuhiro Hongo

V entriculoperitoneal shunt surgery is the most common procedure for hydrocephalus of diverse causes and is associated with a wide variety of complications. Subdural hematoma, one of the most frequent complications of shunt insertion, is usually caused by excessive drainage of CSF. 2 , 4 , 5 , 10 , 12 The SDH generally appears as a crescent-shaped mass over the convexity adjacent to the inner table of the skull on CT scans or adjacent to the dura mater on MR images. We describe the rare case of an infant with an SDH in whom, after VP shunt insertion, a

Nonsurgical acute traumatic subdural hematoma: what is the risk?

Paul Bajsarowicz, Ipshita Prakash, Julie Lamoureux, Rajeet Singh Saluja, Mitra Feyz, Mohammad Maleki, and Judith Marcoux

T raumatic subdural hematomas (SDHs) are a common pathological entity in neurosurgical practice. Between 12% and 29% of patients admitted with a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) have an acute SDH. When combining all patients with TBI, 11% present with an SDH. 10 Acute traumatic SDH has been traditionally considered a lesion that should be treated surgically, although some might be approached conservatively. In a study by Wong, 17 a midline shift greater than 5 mm in patients with a Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score below 15 was associated with

Diagnosis and treatment of middle fossa arachnoid cysts and subdural hematomas

, occasionally found in association with subdural hematoma, to big lesions that fill large portions of the supratentorial compartment. 13 They occur in up to 0.4% of cases with intracranial tumors. 13, 17 This report will deal exclusively with cysts of the middle fossa in the temporal region. 4, 17 They are of major neurosurgical interest due to their frequent association with subdural hematoma, a combination that is rarely seen with cysts in other regions. Computerized tomography (CT) has made diagnosis relatively easy, although some subdural hematomas associated with

Enhancing subdural effusions mimicking acute subdural hematomas following angiography and endovascular procedures: report of 2 cases

Carlos A. Zamora and Doris D. Lin

A case of extravasation of contrast material into the subdural space with development of hyperdense effusions has been reported recently as a potential mimicker of acute subdural hematoma following angiography. 14 In that study, the authors describe the case of a patient who developed hyperdense subdural effusions after a percutaneous coronary intervention. We describe 2 patients who presented with subarachnoid hemorrhage secondary to ruptured aneurysms and who developed hyperdense subdural effusions after angiography. These mimicked acute subdural

Magnetic resonance images of chronic subdural hematomas

Kohkichi Hosoda, Norihiko Tamaki, Michio Masumura, Satoshi Matsumoto, and Fumio Maeda

R ecent reports have described the appearance of chronic subdural hematomas on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). 7, 11, 12, 15 The superiority of MRI over computerized tomography (CT) has already been shown. Here we summarize our experience using MRI on 20 chronic subdural hematomas and discuss the mechanism of changes in relaxation times. Materials and Methods The study was conducted on 20 chronic subdural hematomas from 18 patients (five females and 13 males, aged 4 months to 81 years). The MRI studies were carried out at Shinsuma Hospital with a

Biphasic ventricular dilatation following posterior fossa subdural hematoma in the full-term neonate

Yuichiro Tanaka, Keizo Sakamoto, Shigeaki Kobayashi, Norio Kobayashi, and Shinsuke Muraoka

S ince 1940, when Coblentz 4 described a case of paracerebellar subdural hematoma in a 2-week-old infant, approximately 30 cases of posterior fossa subdural hematoma have been reported. These patients were all successfully treated by surgery. Before the era of computerized tomography (CT) scanning, accurate diagnosis of posterior fossa subdural hematoma was not usually obtained unless obstructive hydrocephalus caused by the subdural hematoma produced progressive enlargement of the head circumference several days after birth. 1, 3, 8, 17, 20, 21 Recently
