Superficial siderosis of the central nervous system (CNS) is caused by repeated hemorrhage into the subarachnoid space with resultant hemosiderin deposition in the subpial layers of the brain and spinal cord. Progressive ataxia and hearing impairment are the most common manifestations of the disorder. We describe a male patient admitted to our hospital for recurrent seizures over the past 3 months. He was diagnosed eventually as having superficial siderosis of the CNS through brain MRI; however… Expand
Three cases of superficial siderosis of the central nervous system and review of the literature
TLDR
Three new cases of superficial siderosis of the central nervous system are presented and the etiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, and treatment options of SS are reviewed. Expand
Superficial siderosis of the central nervous system with seizures onset.
TLDR
This case, the first of its kind reported in the literature, was unusual in that the patient’s condition appeared to have been triggered by radiotherapy and did not involve hearing loss or pyramidal tract disturbance. Expand
Epilepsy caused by superficial hemosiderosis of the central nervous system
Dear Editor-in-Chief, Superficial hemosiderosis of the central nervous system (CNS) is an uncommon and often unrecognized disorder caused by small repeated hemorrhages into the subarachnoid space,Expand
Spinal ependymoma presenting as subarachnoid hemorrhage and leading to superficial siderosis of the central nervous system : a case report
Superficial siderosis of the central nervous system is a very uncommon disorder. We report a rare case of spinal ependymoma in a 58-year-old man whose main complaints at presentation were recentExpand
Superficial siderosis of the central nervous system with epilepsy originating from traumatic cervical injury: illustrative case
Superficial siderosis of the central nervous system (SSCNS) is a rare condition that results from hemosiderin deposition in the brain, brainstem, cerebellum, and spinal cord as a result of chronic,Expand
Superficial siderosis of central nervous system of unknown cause.
TLDR
A 44-year-old man with a past medical history unremarkable presented with a 4-month evolution of progressive cognitive deterioration, deafness and unsteady gait, which revealed mild cognitive impairment, dysarthria, cerebellar ataxia with wide-based unsteadY gait and bilateral sensorineural hypoacusia.

Superficial Siderosis and Anticoagulation Therapy: Different Presentations, Different Outcomes
Superficial siderosis is a potentially manageable neurodegenerative disorder, caused by chronic subarachnoid haemorrhage and iron deposition along the central nervous system surfaces. AssociationExpand
Intracranial dural arteriovenous fistula as a cause for symptomatic superficial siderosis: A report of two cases and review of the literature
TLDR
As noninvasive imaging techniques become more sensitive and easily obtained, one must consider their limitations in detecting occult intracranial vascular malformations such as dAVF as a possible etiology for SS. Expand
Seizures in Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
TLDR
Seizures following SAH may occur at onset, early (within 2 weeks of onset) and late during the disease course, whereas late seizures may be 14?% with a mean latency of approximately 8 months from the onset of hemorrhage. Expand
When stopping the antiplatelet drugs stopped the ‘TIAs’
TLDR
A 70-year-old woman reported recurrent episodes of right- or left-sided sensorimotor disturbance, thought to be recurrent transient ischaemic attacks, which continued despite treatment with antiplatelet agents and imaging appearances suggested cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) associated with superficial siderosis—although fulfilling criteria only for ‘possible CAA’.

TLDR
Brain MRI data indicate SS per se to be much more frequent than may be assumed from the literature, and appears to become symptomatic only with extensive amounts of widespread iron deposition which develop preferentially with cryptic or unidentified causes of bleeding. Expand
