Subdural Hygroma


Presentation

  • We herein present a case of an asymptomatic arachnoid cyst with rupture into the subdural space bilaterally and presenting as raised intracranial pressure.[pediatricneurosciences.com]
  • Inthe paper a case of a patient is presented where after craniocerebral injurybilateral symptomatic subdural hygroma developed. He was first treated with insertion of bilateral subdural drainage and then with repeated subdural taps.[dlib.si]
  • 1 In accordance with the Monroe Kellie doctrine, secondary venodilation may develop as a compensatory measure to the low CSF pressure, adding a vascular component with venous dilatation to the typical MR-presentation introduced as SEEPS ( subdural hygroma[ludwig.guru]
  • Burgos Department of Radiology, Tripler Army Medical Center, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA Correspondence to Dr Chong K Yi, chong.k.yi1.mil{at}mail.mil Statistics from Altmetric.com Description A 23-year-old man with a history of limited right ankle dorsiflexion presented[casereports.bmj.com]
  • This paper presents a 58-year-old male patient who underwent surgery for right acoustic neuroma and developed a SDH postoperatively. SDH, even though rarely seen, is a serious CPA tumor surgery complication calling for early diagnosis and treatment.[manuscriptmodule.com]
Asymptomatic
  • We herein present a case of an asymptomatic arachnoid cyst with rupture into the subdural space bilaterally and presenting as raised intracranial pressure.[pediatricneurosciences.com]
  • Treatment and prognosis The vast majority of patients with subdural hygroma are asymptomatic without radiographic evidence of mass-effect, and thus neurosurgical intervention is rarely required 5.[radiopaedia.org]
  • It is usually asymptomatic. Sometimes gradual increase is notedwhich acts tensionally and causes pressure on the brain structures. It this case surgical treatment is necessary which is usually straightforward.[dlib.si]
Fever
  • In these cases the symptoms such as mild fever, headache, drowsiness and confusion can be seen, which are relieved by draining this subdural fluid. Signs and symptoms [ edit ] Most subdural hygromas are small and clinically insignificant.[en.wikipedia.org]

Ulcer
  • The medical records show that on the 6th of March the patient was diagnosed with ventriculitis, on the 14th with multiple stress ulcers, on the 24th with left fronto-temporal subdural hygroma, subsequently drained and on the 3rd of April a CT scan showed[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
Ankle Pain
  • Aside from mild right ankle pain, physical and neurological examinations were unremarkable. Lumbar spine MRI revealed subdural fluid collections at T12-S1 levels ( figure 1 A, B).[casereports.bmj.com]
Suggestibility
  • Although less common, there is evidence suggesting that spontaneous CSF leaks may be associated with connective tissue disorders, such as Marfan syndrome. 3 Learning points Spontaneous resolution of idiopathic lumbar subdural hygroma has not been reported[casereports.bmj.com]
Headache
  • The Journal of Headache and Pain 2 Rarely complications may develop in the form of subdural hygroma and neurological deficits due to brainstem compression.[ludwig.guru]

Confusion
  • Elderly patients with marked cerebral atrophy, and secondary widened subarachnoid CSF spaces, can also cause confusion on CT.[en.wikipedia.org]
Seizure
  • However, most of the clinically active cysts present with seizures because of chronic compression. Presentation as raised intracranial pressure due to cyst rupture into the subdural space is a rare clinical entity.[pediatricneurosciences.com]

Treatment

  • Treatment [ edit ] Most subdural hygromas that are asymptomatic do not require any treatment. Some might opt to perform a simple burr-holes to alleviate inter-cranial pressure (ICP). Occasionally a temporary drain is placed for 24-48 hours post op.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • It this case surgical treatment is necessary which is usually straightforward. Inthe paper a case of a patient is presented where after craniocerebral injurybilateral symptomatic subdural hygroma developed.[dlib.si]

Prognosis

  • Treatment and prognosis The vast majority of patients with subdural hygroma are asymptomatic without radiographic evidence of mass-effect, and thus neurosurgical intervention is rarely required 5.[radiopaedia.org]

Prevention

  • […] hygroma and subcutaneous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) collection, we made only a minimal opening of the arachnoid membrane, and this was followed by suturing the arachnoid membrane after STA-MCA bypass using a 10-0 nylon suture (Ethicon, Somerville, N.J). to prevent[ludwig.guru]
