Acute spinal subdural hematoma

Case report

Albert Zilkha and John M. Nicoletti

S pinal subdural hematoma is rare, and only a few cases have been reported. We report a patient who developed a lumbar spinal subdural hematoma following minor trauma. Case Report A 26-year-old woman was admitted to the Nassau County Medical Center complaining of fever plus pain and weakness of the right leg. She gave a history of having had a right occipital scalp abscess drained 4 weeks prior to admission. Two weeks prior to admission she fell on her back, but was able to get up and did not complain of pain or weakness immediately. Over the following

Extradural and subdural hematomas

Changing patterns and requirements of treatment in Australia

Kenneth G. Jamieson

might offer another perspective to this universal problem. Thus, although extradural and subdural hematomas provide the orientation of my remarks, I will not attempt any systematic account of the total related problem but rather highlight those special facets that have commanded my particular attention. In Brisbane, less than half-way up the Eastern seaboard of Australia, my department serves an area that extends 300 miles south, 1000 miles west, 1200 miles north on the Australian mainland, and 1500 miles to the territories of Papua and New Guinea, and east on

Parkinsonism due to subdural hematoma

Case report

Reuven Sandyk and Iqbal Kahn

C hronic increased intracranial pressure is an uncommon cause of parkinsonism, which has usually been described in association with cerebral tumors, the majority of which are meningiomas localized to the frontal lobe. 4 In most of the cases in which parkinsonism was caused either by a tumor or by chronic subdural hematoma, removal of the primary cause was followed by disappearance of the extrapyramidal symptoms. 3 We report the case of a patient with parkinsonism due to subdural hematoma.

Physiopathogenesis of subdural hematomas

Part 1: Histological and biochemical comparisons of subcutaneous hematoma in rats with subdural hematoma in man

Enrique L. Labadie and David Glover

T he physiopathogenesis of subdural hematomas in man has been the subject of debate for nearly 150 years, 3, 7, 10, 11, 18, 21, 22, 26, 28, 29, 32, 34, 40, 42–45 but lack of an adequate experimental animal model has greatly hindered research. 15, 33 Recently, however, Watanabe, et al. , 41 have claimed that blood clotted in the presence of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and surgically placed into the subdural or subcutaneous space of dogs and monkeys induced lesions that enlarged progressively.

Metastatic melanoma simulating subdural hematoma

Case report

, electrolytes, urinalysis and a chest radiograph were normal. Right common carotid angiography showed a 5-mm “square” shift of the pericallosal artery to the left side. There was also a crescent-shaped avascular space overlying the right temporal lobe ( Fig. 1 ). This was demonstrated to better advantage in the oblique view. No neovascularity was identified. These studies and the history of recent head trauma led to a confident diagnosis of subdural hematoma. Fig. 1. Right common carotid angiogram showing shift of pericallosal artery to the left.
