Summary of "Ossified Chronic Subdural Hematoma and Subsequent Epstein-Barr Virus-Positive Large B-cell Lymphoma: A Case Report and Literature Review."

Ossification and calcification of chronic subdural hematoma associated with neoplasm has rarely been reported in the literature; there are only six published reports of lymphoma or lymphoproliferative disorder associated with chronic subdural hematoma. Here, we describe our experience with a patient with ossified chronic subdural hematoma and subsequent underlying large B-cell lymphoma by continuous imaging examinations who is still disease free 5 years postoperatively, and discuss the relationship between lymphoma and chronic subdural hematoma, with emphasis on the clinical characteristics, tumorigenic mechanism, and histopathological analysis.

Subperiosteal vs Subdural Drain After Burr-Hole Drainage of Chronic Subdural Hematoma: A Randomized Clinical Trial (cSDH-Drain-Trial).

The use of a subdural drain (SDD) after burr-hole drainage of chronic subdural hematoma (cSDH) reduces recurrence at 6 mo. Subperiosteal drains (SPDs) are considered safer, since they are not position...

Analysis of Endoscopic Findings in the Chronic Subdural Hematoma Cavity: Bleeding Factors in Chronic Subdural Hematoma Natural History and as Predictors of Recurrence.

Possible factors associated with bleeding from endoscopy-detected chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs) have rarely been analyzed. We therefore evaluated intraoperative endoscopic findings to elucidate t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Accumulation of blood in the SUBDURAL SPACE between the DURA MATER and the arachnoidal layer of the MENINGES. This condition primarily occurs over the surface of a CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE, but may develop in the spinal canal (HEMATOMA, SUBDURAL, SPINAL). Subdural hematoma can be classified as the acute or the chronic form, with immediate or delayed symptom onset, respectively. Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, severe HEADACHE, and deteriorating mental status.

Accumulation of blood in the SUBDURAL SPACE with delayed onset of neurological symptoms. Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, severe HEADACHE, and deteriorating mental status.

Subdural hematoma of the SPINAL CANAL.

Accumulation of blood in the SUBDURAL SPACE over the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE.

A common, acute infection usually caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN). There is an increase in mononuclear white blood cells and other atypical lymphocytes, generalized lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly, and occasionally hepatomegaly with hepatitis.
