Therefore, medico-legal evaluation reports to be made about an individual must be prepared taking into consideration the late complications of trauma. You can help by adding to it. There are two prior case reports of medically managed SDHs that were placed on systemic anticoagulation [ Table 1 ], and we also successfully managed our first patient with systemic anticoagulation. Conservative treatment was chosen. He was comatose with right midriasis Glasgow Coma Scale score 7.

Support Center Support Center. One of the common causes of subdural hygroma is a sudden decrease in pressure as a result of placing a ventricular shunt.

Higroma cerebral infectado, by on Prezi

MRI documentation of hemorrhage into post-traumatic subdural hygroma. He underwent a mini-craniotomy; and repeat CT imaging after the procedure [ Figure 3b ] demonstrated excellent hematoma evacuation and brain reexpansion. Case 8 Case 8. Superior sagittal sinus thrombosis followed by subdural hematoma. J Korean Med Sci ; It is not uncommon for chronic subdural hematomas SDHs on CT reports for scans of the head to be misinterpreted as subdural hygromas, and vice versa.


Most subdural hygromas that are asymptomatic do not require any treatment. An hogromas for risk factors for cerebral venous thrombosis should include screening for thrombophilias including: A suggested hypothesis of venous stasis. When anticoagulation is recommended following intracranial procedures, we avoid bridging therapy heparin, heparinoids and start warfarin unless there are other compelling features such as pulmonary embolus with hemodynamic compromise.

Daily aspirin mg was initiated on the day of this intervention; patient was discharged home without neurologic deficits. Although the pathophysiology has not been fully explained, the most widely accepted theory has been reported as tears occurring in the arachnoid membrane acting as a one-way flap preventing the absorption of fluid which has leaked into the subdural space [ 1 ]. Fine structure of neomembranes. The patient presented at the Emergency Department again 5 days after the initial trauma, with complaints of headache and nausea.

The vast majority of patients are asymptomatic. Loading Stack – 0 images remaining. In these cases the symptoms such as mild fever, headache, drowsiness and confusion can be seen, which are relieved by draining this subdural fluid. In the case presented here, the medico-legal evaluation on theday of the event reported the clinical status of the patient as exposure to mild trauma and the diagnosis of subdural higroma was made on presentation 5 days after the event.

The most commonly encountered explanation is a tear in the arachnoid layer forming a ball-valve opening allowing CSF one way passage into the subdural space.


Catheter angiography a and b and venography c and d were performed.

Post-Traumatic Subdural Higroma: A Case Report

A year old male presented at the Emergency Department with blunt head trauma and was higroomas to have lost consciousness. Available FREE in open access from: Descriptions in literature of evolving traumatic subdural hygroma have presented CT scan density modifications changing into chronic subdural hematoma.

For the next 10 days, he presented with headache and somnolence, with subsequent improvement. While we did start patients 2 and 3 on aspirin, the benefit of antiplatelet agents on venous thrombosis is negligible.

Selective venography of the left transverse sinus c demonstrates back-filling of the vein of Labbe black arrow and elevated pressures.

Jigromas subsequent imaging with MRI, MR angiography, and MR venography, a filling defect was visible in the distal left transverse sinus and no flow was observed in the distal left sigmoid sinus or internal jugular cerebdales.

Thus, the identification of rarely seen late complications of trauma, the establishment of a link with causes of the incident and the application of a sound medico-legal evaluation can be provided. Subdural higroma is an accumulation of CSF in the subdural space in an acute or chronic process, which is generally secondary to trauma.
