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.

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a universal herpes virus which can cause a life-long and largely asymptomatic infection in the human population. However, the exact pathogenesis of the EBV infection is not...
Symptomatic primary Epstein-Barr virus infection is a usually self-limiting illness in adolescents. We present a case of an adolescent who had been receiving azathioprine for inflammatory bowel diseas...
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...
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...
Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is a rare, aggressive and life-threatening syndrome, characterized by an excessive immune activation. It is triggered by multiple stimuli, with infections having an ...
RATIONALE: Donor lymphocytes that have been exposed to Epstein-Barr virus may be able to help the body kill cancers associated with this virus. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effecti...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the immune responses associated with Epstein-Barr virus infections, and to find out the possible immunodeficiencies that may be linked to severe...
RATIONALE: The Epstein-Barr virus can cause cancer and lymphoproliferative disorders. Valganciclovir is an antiviral drug that acts against the Epstein-Barr virus. Phenylbutyrate may make ...
RATIONALE: Some types of lymphoma or lymphoproliferative disease are associated with Epstein-Barr virus. White blood cells from donors who are immune to Epstein-Barr virus may be an effect...
Chronic subdural hematomas are a frequent neurosurgical pathology in the elderly. Gold standard is surgical evacuation of these hematomas. Physiopathology of chronic subdural hematoma invo...
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.
