Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) tends to occur in elderly patients with a history of mild head injury at a few months prior to the onset of symptoms. [] Key Method The clinical and radiological characteristics of the cases of CSDH associated with arachnoid cyst were retrospectively analyzed and compared with those of CSDH without arachnoid cyst. Arachnoid cysts were located in the middle fossa (eight cases), convexity (two cases), and posterior fossa (two cases). Three cysts were less than 20 mm in diameter…

Arachnoid Cyst is it a Risk Factor for Chronic Subdural Hematoma in Young Adults? (A Report of Four Cases and Review of Literature)

Arachnoid cyst is a possible risk factor for subdural hematoma in young adults and a burr hole procedure with drainage of hematomas is an adequate treatment.

Chronic subdural hematoma associated with arachnoid cyst of the middle fossa : Surgical treatment and mid-term results in fifteen patients.

AIM We report the neurological and radiological features, surgical management and Mid-term outcome in a series of patients with chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) and associated ipsilateral arachnoid

Spontaneous chronic subdural hematoma associated with arachnoid cyst in a child: A case report and critical review of the literature

Burr hole evacuation of CSDH with irrigation only, leaving the AC intact, is a successful surgical approach for treatment and was associated with good outcome.

Relationship between supratentorial arachnoid cyst and chronic subdural hematoma: neuroradiological evidence and surgical treatment.

Arachnoid cysts associated with SDH are anatomically separate conditions whose neurological symptoms respond to surgical drainage of the CSDH alone, and these observations received support from the neuroimaging appearances, suggesting that arachnoids cysts related to hematoma contained only blood breakdown products from the hematomas that had filtered through the reciprocal dividing membranes.

Chronic Subdural Hematoma Associated With Arachnoid Cyst — Two Case Reports With Pathological Observations —

Simple hematoma evacuation is adequate as a first operation for CSDH associated with arachnoid cyst with good clinical courses and without recurrence more than 1.5 years after surgery.

Arachnoid cyst complicated by spontaneous Chronic Subdural Hematoma in the infant

1 year-old-boy presented with epileptic seizures for one month and left parietal an arachnoid cyst and frontotemporo-pareital chronic subdural hematoma and surgical resection seems to be very favorable.

Ruptured intracranial arachnoid cysts in the subdural space: evaluation of subduro-peritoneal shunts in a pediatric population

Medium-pressure subduro-peritoneal shunts should be considered as part of the arsenal of surgical strategy in symptomatic ruptured AC in the subdural space and strongly recommend avoiding devices which may create an overdrainage and expose the patient to shunt dependency such as low-pressure shunts.

Temporal fossa arachnoid cyst presenting with bilateral subdural hematoma following trauma: two case reports

It is important to identify and report such rare complications with intracranial arachnoid cysts, so that asymptomatic patients with an intrusion can be counseled about such possibilities following head trauma.

Hematoma within the Outer Membrane of the Arachnoid Cyst Located in the Middle Fossa: A Mechanism of Development of Chronic Subdural Hematoma Associated with Arachnoid Cysts

It is well known that chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) occasionally arises in patients harboring an arachnoid cyst (AC) located in the middle fossa. Although the pathogenesis of CSDH associated with



Arachnoid cysts associated with subdural hematomas and hygromas: analysis of 16 cases, long-term follow-up, and review of the literature.

It is not generally considered it necessary to perform cyst diversion or fenestration at the time of drainage of a hematoma or hygroma in previously asymptomatic arachnoid cysts.

Chronic subdural hematoma associated with middle fossa arachnoid cysts--three case reports.

Three patients with chronic subdural hematoma associated with middle fossa arachnoid cyst were treated by irrigating the hematoma through burr holes, because the symptoms were considered mainly due

Arachnoid cysts of the middle fossa predispose to subdural haematoma formation fact or fiction?

Only ACMF were associated with the development of SDH in this study and it is advocated that with special reference to young males, in the absence of major skull trauma an ACMF should be suspected as a predisposing factor to SDH.

Arachnoid cyst rupture producing subdural hygroma and intracranial hypertension: case reports.

The rupture of an arachnoid cyst can produce a subdural hygroma and intracranial hypertension, and in patients in whom the basal cisterns are not dilated by cyst rupture, both the MFACs and hygromas resolve afterSubdural drainage.

Arachnoid cysts of the middle cranial fossa: experience with 77 patients who were treated with cystoperitoneal shunting.

Cystoperitoneal shunting is a valid method of achieving obliteration of the cyst and clinical improvement and seems to feature low operative risk and few complications.

Clinical analysis of arachnoid cysts in the middle fossa.

The clinical picture and radiological findings of 12 cases of "idiopathic" arachnoid cyst in the middle fossa which the authors have encountered during the past 12 years are described.

Intraoperative subdural hematoma in a patient with arachnoid cyst in the middle cranial fossa

Accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid outside the outer wall of the arachnoid cyst was found to induce the rupture of well-developed, fragile leptomeningeal vessels at the base of the middle cranial fossa, suggesting the bleeding source of subdural hematoma occasionally associated with this lesion.

Middle fossa arachnoid cyst: clinical, neuroradiological, and surgical features.

16 patients and 4 adult cases of small-or medium-sized middle fossa arachnoid cyst were subjected to various neuroradiological investigations and their results were analyzed in terms of possible mechanisms of cyst expansion, suggesting that the cyst is an expanding lesion.

Disappearance of arachnoid cysts after head injury.

The spontaneous disappearance of these cysts after head injury is discussed to support the possibility of a "natural cure" for arachnoid cysts without surgical intervention.

A reappraisal of the relationship between arachnoid cysts of the middle fossa and chronic subdural haematoma.

Two theories are proposed to account for the observed susceptibility to the development of subdural haematomas in patients with arachnoid cysts of the middle fossa, and repeat of CT scanning in these patients in the absence of severe trauma is recommended.
