Lee KS. On computed tomography (CT), the classic descriptions of blood products within the subdural space relate to density changes which evolve over time.â¦ The 5 patients were managed nonoperatively with acetazolamide and high-dose dexamethasone; dosages of both drugs were adjusted to the age and weight of each patient. The exact etiopathogenesis is poorly understood, however, the most acknowledged mechanism suggests traumatic arachnoid tear with efflux and entrapment of CSF in the subdural space (flap valve mechanism). While the former is compatible with both a rapid and a delayed process, the latter, in fact, suggests a traumatic event that occurred weeks ago. Vessels rarely cross through the lesion in contrast-enhanced studies (see cortical vein sign) 1. The present review article sheds light on subdural collections in children with abusive head trauma and aims at providing a recent knowledge base for various medical disciplines involved in diagnostic procedures and legal proceedings. Hosten N, Liebig T. CT of the Head and Spine. Approximately 50 BVs (diameter, 0.05–3.07 mm) connect the cortical veins of the cerebral and cerebellar surface with the large venous sinuses, thereby penetrating the inner part of the dura mater.41 Typically, injuries of the BVs cause extra-axial hemorrhage, predominantly within the subarachnoid and subdural spaces.23,41⇓⇓–44. This article has not yet been cited by articles in journals that are participating in Crossref Cited-by Linking. The radiologic investigation of SDCs has the potential to contribute to important issues such as type, number, and circumstances of the traumatic force or the age of injury. Green indicates the dura mater; orange, the arachnoid membrane; the space in between, the subdural space; hom., homogeneous; het., heterogeneous; t, time; R, resorption/resolution. The heterogeneous variant of the SDHHy (Fig 1E, -F) indicates 2 SDC components that coexist within the same subdural compartment (eg, above a brain convexity); these components may be clearly distinguished from one another (fluid-fluid levels possible) and may appear hyper- and hypodense during CT investigations (mixed-density pattern).22,28,30⇓–32 The hypodense component is interpretable as the following: Acute CSF collection (eg, due to an arachnoid tear, see below: “Pathophysiology”). Simplified schematic drawing of the development of cSDHs via SDHys/SDHHys according to Hymel et al,20 Hedlund,22 Wittschieber et al,27 Zouros et al,29Lee et al,34 and Lee.49 The findings within the yellow box demonstrate the possible SDC entities following AHT that can often be found during initial cross-sectional neuroimaging. 2004;18 (3): 297-300. Natural history of chronic subdural haematoma. The presence of isolated iso- to hypodense SDCs is another typical problem in CT investigations of SDCs (Fig 1B). There are the most subdural hygroma are believed to be derived from the chronic subdural hematomas. Objective: Hydrocephalus associated with subdural hygromas is a rare complication after decompression of Chiari malformation type I (CM-I). A subdural hygroma radiographically appears as a crescentic near-CSF density/signal accumulation in the subdural space that does not extend into the sulci and rarely exerts significant mass-effect 5. Classic SDH stages in CT and MRI (at 1.5T)a. Compared with CSF within the external and internal CSF spaces, the SDCs appear hypointense. However, some symptoms uncommonly reported include 5: The pathogenesis of subdural hygromas is not entirely understood. A common variant of the abusive head trauma is the shaken baby syndrome. The pathophysiologic background is explained. In contrast to the nonenhanced T1WI (not shown), this contrast agent–enhanced study revealed focal signal enrichment located at the neomembranes (arrows). INTRODUCTION. During the initial image-assessment process, the more careful labeling as SDC may be more reasonable than the possibly hasty determination of a special SDC entity.18,19 Terminology and definition criteria of the SDC entities are inconsistent, even among experts. Br J Neurosurg. Neurosurgery. MRI (magnetic resonâ¦ Other potential pathogenic mechanisms for posttraumatic low attenuation subdural fluid include a hygroma due to a tear in the arachnoid membrane, 6 an effusion from traumatized meninges, 7,8 and a hyperacute hematoma with fresh unclotted blood or areas of unretracted semiliquid clot. -, 5. hematoma evacuation, ventricular drainage, the relationship between chronic subdural hematomas and subdural hygromas is complex and incompletely understood, it is almost certain that a significant number of collections diagnosed as chronic subdural hematomas represent chronic subdural hygromas, MRI may be required to differentiate as they can have an identical appearance on CT but it should be noted that subdural hygromas often do not completely follow CSF on FLAIRÂ, involutional change with enlargement of the subarachnoid space, rounded and circumscribed with localized mass effect. Subdural hematoma (SDH) forms when there is hemorrhage into the potential space between the dura and the arachnoid membranes. While the frontoparietal SDC proportions appear hypointense, the parietooccipital proportions are iso- to hyperintense. JBR-BTR. However, it seems clear that an outer subdural neomembrane (at the dural side) is primarily formed. In summary, as consensually corroborated by a number of leading medical societies,75 the close cooperation and joint evaluation by clinicians, radiologists, and forensic experts remains essential in cases of suspected AHT. Normally, SDEs and SDEms are nontraumatic, but in rare cases, SDEms may originate following penetrating head trauma or craniotomy, which, of course, is usually known in the clinical setting. In neuropathology, the first formation of neomembranes is described as macroscopically visible after ∼10 days.74 Their radiologic detection may be challenging and often requires MR imaging, sometimes even supported by intravenous contrast. INTRODUCTION. Coronal T2-weighted MR image shows bilateral subdural hygromas with a normal-appearing bridging vein (arrow) traversing the subdural hygroma on the right. This pathologic space does not exist under physiologic conditions and has been recognized as an intradural lesion caused by cleavage of the innermost part of the dura mater, the dura border cell layer.22,46,47 Nevertheless, the traditional term “subdural” is still widely in use; thus, BV hemorrhage leads to what is generally referred to as SDH. It has been proposed that subdural hygromas, at least sometimes, represent prominent subdural effusions in which there is a separation of the dural border cell layer with an accumulation of fluid 7. De kans op het optreden neemt toe met de leeftijd en de atrofische veranderingen in de cerebrale weefsels. B, SDHy (nonenhanced CT): a 2-month-old boy with wide, homogeneously hypodense (or CSF-isodense) SDCs over both frontoparietal regions; no neomembranes or septa. Differential diagnostics of the various SDC entities is a challenging topic for the radiologist. De meest voorkomende lokalisatie van subdural hygroma - een boventijdelijk omgeving. The term subdural hygroma (SDHy) is classically reserved for proteinaceous, clear, pink-tinged, or xanthochromatic collections within the subdural space containing pure CSF or at least CSF-like fluid; blood, blood products, or neomembranes are nonexistent by definition (Fig 1B, -C).22,26,27 However, the smallest amounts of blood within the SDHy cannot always be excluded and may become noticeable on CT by a slightly higher density compared with CSF (see below: “Subdural Hematohygroma,” “homogeneous variant”). Subdural hematomas form between the dura and the arachnoid membranes Epidural hematomas arise in the potential space between the dura and the skull The pathophysiology, etiology, clinical features, and diagnostic evaluation of SDH will be discussed here. A, Acute SDH (nonenhanced CT): a 2-month-old boy with a small hyperdense SDC over the left frontoparietal region (arrow) and hyperdense blood components around the tentorium (arrowheads). For example, it is possible to exclude that wide hypodense SDCs with neomembranes formed 2 days ago as suggested by a witness.

Subdural Hygroma Definition:- A Subdural Hygroma is a collection of cerebrospinal fluid, without blood (while not blood), located under the dural membrane of the brain. Definition. suggested that increased cerebrospinal space and cerebrospinal fluid pressure may result in compensatory enlargement of head circumference only in the infant period, and the subdural hygroma thickness decreases with age during the infant â¦ 18 (4): 351-8. Deltour P, Lemmerling M, Bauters W et-al. Of those cases, 5 pediatric patients with a delayed postoperative complication involving hydrocephalus and subdural hygromas were identified. The observation of SDC development could be another possibility to increase the accuracy of age estimations of SDCs. ISBN:B005R1PB8S. G, Chronic SDH (nonenhanced CT): a 7-month-old boy with wide, hypodense SDCs over both frontoparietal regions and subtle formation of subdural neomembranes on the left side (arrows). With respect to other variants of AHT, further features of head injury may occur, in particular, signs of blunt force (impact) trauma against the child's head such as skin lesions or skull fractures. 11 Persistent tears in the lining might lead to cyst resolution in rare cases. The authors present a series of 5 pediatric patients who underwent CM-I decompression with placement of a dural graft complicated by posterior fossa hygromas and hydrocephalus that were successfully â¦ In those cases, the presence of neomembranes is described after ∼2–4 weeks.22, Possible distinguishing criteria between SDHy and cSDH in neuroimaginga. A case of a nine-year-old boy, without any preceding history of trauma, is presented here who came to the emergency department of a tertiary care hospital with complaints of headache, nausea, and vomiting for the last two weeks but more for the last two days. E, SDHHy, heterogeneous variant (nonenhanced CT): a 19-month-old boy with an SDC in the left frontoparietal region. This can lead to leakage of CSF into the sâ¦ J Trauma. Note â¦ Lee KS. In many cases, it is considered an epiphenomenon of head injury when it is called a traumatic subdural hygroma.Â. 3. Finally, in many cases, the question is whether the diagnosis is SDHy or cSDH. METHODS: Patients with arachnoid cysts and intracystic hemorrhage, adjacent subdural hygroma, or adjacent subdural hematoma treated at a single institution from 2005 to 2010 were retrospectively identified. Check for errors and try again. 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. Importantly these collections do not entirely follow CSF on FLAIR, often appearing hyperintense.Â, The vast majority of patients with subdural hygroma are asymptomatic without radiographic evidence of mass-effect, and thus neurosurgical intervention is rarely required 5. Imaging differential considerations include: ADVERTISEMENT: Supporters see fewer/no ads, Please Note: You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys. These proteinaceous SDC entities are predominantly considered sequelae (in case of subdural effusion [SDE]) or complications (in case of subdural empyema [SDEm], eg, due to an infected SDE) of bacterial meningitis or sinusitis.22,39 These conditions usually do not cause diagnostic difficulties because inflammatory symptomatology or a history of CNS infection is typically present. Relevant differential diagnoses such as metabolic disorders, infectious and hematologic diseases, and birth trauma must be excluded. 42 â 44 It must be distinguished from other entities that might have a similar appearance on cerebral computed tomography (CT), including subdural hygroma, formerly called subdural hydroma, 45 and external hydrocephalus. Key Words subdural hematoma, subdural hygroma, intracranial hemorrhage Introduction The accurate age determination of a subdural hemorrhage is one of the most common and basic assessments in the setting of head trauma. These rapid movements result in repeated acceleration and deceleration of the child's head due to missing postural control. SUMMARY: Life-threatening physical abuse of infants and toddlers is frequently correlated with head injuries. She was managed by subdural tap, bilateral craniotomy, broad-spectrum antibiotics, and subduroperitoneal shunt insertion. The radiologic analysis and assessment of SDCs remain a challenging task because different SDC entities may appear radiologically very similar at different developmental stages. Hygroma resolution with the return of prior arachnoid cyst dimensions may result from healing of the tear in the outer arachnoid cyst lining. An acute subdural hematoma is shown in this intraoperative photograph. Supernatant (and thus an integral part of blood) changed by gravity (serum separation/blood sedimentation/hematocrit effect), in the sense of an SDH. benign enlargement of the subarachnoid spaces in infancy, post surgical,Â e.g. Benign external hydrocephalus (BEH), hygroma and chronic subdural haematoma are extraâaxial fluid collections in infants.

In contrast to the situation in adults, genuine cSDHs are relatively rare in infants.22,36⇓–38. subdural hygroma to improve the understanding and to suggest a standard treatment method. 8. AHT is predominantly caused by acceleration-deceleration trauma, blunt force trauma (impact), or a combination of these mechanisms.8,9,40 In acceleration-deceleration trauma, the child is usually held firmly at the thorax or upper arms and is then shaken. 9,10 A hyperacute hematoma pattern, with sequential CT examinations showing conversion of liquid â¦ We do not capture any email address. In addition, small and medium-sized blood vessels within the cranial cavity, particularly the bridging veins (BVs) that mainly run through the subarachnoid space, may rupture in part or completely. 1. Subdural hygromas generally occur along the supratentorial cerebral convexities;Â occurrence in the posterior fossa is rare 4. The demographics will depend on the underlying cause which includes: 1. idiopathic: in pediatric patients 2. trauma 3. post surgical, e.g. The transitional zone between the 2 components is almost smooth; fluid-fluid levels cannot be recognized unambiguously. Due to shearing forces, the arachnoid membrane may also tear (eg, in the vicinity of strained BVs or at Pacchionian granulations).29,48 If this is the case, transfer of CSF from the subarachnoid space to the subdural space is possible. Read "Subdural hygroma associated with axillary cystic hygroma, Journal of Pediatric Neurology" on DeepDyve, the largest online rental service for scholarly research with thousands of academic publications available at your fingertips. 7. Thus, the combination of insufficient reference data, little specific experience (eg, due to usually low AHT case numbers in nonuniversity institutions), heterogeneous pathophysiologic/anatomic knowledge, and general lack of consensus concerning methodology (missing guidelines) unsurprisingly results in inconsistent assessments among radiologists as shown recently.67,68 These studies reflect the poor data situation and demonstrate the broad and overlapping time intervals of SDH stages, which represent a general argument against age estimation of SDCs.67,68. see Spinal subdural hygroma. H, Chronic SDH (MR imaging, T1WI, gradient-echo sequence, enhanced by contrast agent): same case as in G. Confirmation of the presence of subdurally located septa and chamber formations. It is usually asymptomatic but may alter consciousness. In cases where mass-effect is radiographically demonstrated, it may be neurosurgically evacuated 5.Â. As long as no harmonization of terminology, methodology, and age diagnostic criteria of SDCs exists and as long as the scientific data situation has not improved, only rough time-related statements on SDCs will be possible. However, there are numerous reports of hypodense SDCs that formed very early after the reported traumatic event (partly even within a few hours), namely without an additional trauma and also on the contralateral side of a hyperdense SDC observed initially.22,27,28,37,69,70 One possible explanation for those observations may be arachnoid tears resulting in CSF accumulations within the subdural space corresponding to acute formation of an SDHy or SDHHy. In addition, in-depth understanding of the pathogenesis of subdural hygromas is increasingly required by neuroradiologists, pediatricians, and forensic physicians. Mccluney KW, Yeakley JW, Fenstermacher MJ et-al. 8. Subdural hematoma is bilateral in 20% of patients with chronic subdural hematoma. The term “subdural collection” (SDC) is understood as a nonspecific umbrella term comprising various, in part, successively stagelike findings within the subdural space. 31 : 445-450, 1992. Lee KS. The neuroradiologic analysis and assessment of subdural collections may decisively contribute to answering differential diagnostic and forensic questions. An acute subdural hygroma results from the acute accumulation of CSF within the dural border cell layer. The pictographs schematically visualize the CT morphologic appearance of the respective SDC. With time, these SDC entities may then develop into a cSDH (purple box). Distinguishing between subdural hygroma and hematoma is difficult and may be artificial, because hygromas often progress to hematomas .Subdural hematomas and hygromas are rare complications of spinal anesthesia .The cause of the complication is thought to be leakage of the cerebrospinal fluid â¦ 2. Subdural hygromas can be found incidentally on imaging for other reasons or seen accumulating relatively quickly following a closed head injury. Subdural hygroma is conventionally considered as a delayed traumatic lesion, however, it can be discovered as early as within first few hours of trauma. ... raised ICP or subdural hygroma. This pattern is significantly more frequent in AHT than in accidental head trauma.30,72 In the past, the dogma was that such a pattern would represent a combination of “new” and “old” blood, indicating repeated trauma. The principle is as follows: If a stage X (eg, “chronic”) is found, according to available study data, a minimum time Y (eg, 2 weeks) has elapsed since the trauma has occurred. Subdural hygroma versus atrophy on MR brain scans: "the cortical vein sign". In this case, the study also revealed severe brain edema with a midline shift to the right side as well as hyperdense blood components within the anterior and posterior interhemispheric fissures. Two unruptured/nonhemorrhagic controls were matched to each case based on patient age, sex, anatomical cyst location, and side. The term subdural hygroma (SDHy) is classically reserved for proteinaceous, clear, pink-tinged, or xanthochromatic collections within the subdural space containing pure CSF or at least CSF-like fluid; blood, blood products, or neomembranes are nonexistent by definition (Fig 1B, -C). In light of serious physical, psychological, and legal consequences, physical child abuse attracts increasing attention in terms of health policy and health economy.1⇓–3 Head injuries represent the most frequent cause of lethal outcome and mainly relate to children within their first and second years of life.4⇓–6 Currently, the term “abusive head trauma” (AHT) is used for any nonaccidental or inflicted head injuries in pediatrics.7⇓–9, AHT has a worldwide incidence of 14–30/100,000 live births among children younger than 1 year of age.5,10⇓⇓–13 Additionally, a high amount of underreporting has to be assumed because many cases are not identified due to subclinical courses, nonspecific symptoms, or missing medical consultation.14 Meta-analyses on the outcome revealed an average mortality rate of around 20% among children younger than 2 years of age.15 Survivors showed severe disability (eg, tetraplegia, epilepsy, or blindness) in ∼34%, and moderate disability (eg, hemiplegia, memory and attention difficulties) in ∼25% of the cases.15. 1998;12 (7): 595-603. Subdural hygroma affects the critical age groups of less than 5âyears and more than 60âyears, when the dural space is large enough for the fluid to accumulate [1 1. 9. Spinal trauma such as ligamentous injuries at the craniocervical junction, or spinal sub- or epidural hematomas. The latter does not communicate freely with the SAS and is encapsulated by a neomembrane bearing capillaries. This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions. The fact that the maximum duration of the antecedent stage often overlaps the earliest occurrence of the next stage does not affect the forensic statement (eg, that the SDC is at least 2 weeks old). There is no consensus for management of this complication. In many cases of an SDC diagnosed as SDHy, it may be assumed that the SDC is actually the homogeneous variant of the SDHHy (Fig 1D) because the blood component may sometimes be relatively small and/or very “young” (hyperacute); furthermore, an intense mixture of blood and CSF may be present.27⇓–29 Hence, in our experience, SDHy and SDHHy are used interchangeably or synonymously in radiology reports. 22,26,27 However, the smallest amounts of blood within the SDHy cannot always be â¦ D, SDHHy, homogeneous variant (MR imaging, T2WI, TSE, nonenhanced): a 3-month-old boy with homogeneous SDCs over both frontoparietal regions. Management is still a matter of controversy (conservative Vssurgical) especially when consciousness is a concern. This can result from an acute tear in both the arachnoid and the dural border cell layer, resulting in communication of these two spaces. A portion of these cases develops further toward the findings shown within the blue box. Background: Subdural hygroma (SDHy) is a collection of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) under the dural membrane. Indicates open access to non-subscribers at www.ajnr.org. Concern for AHT in a 4-month-old boy. Unable to process the form. Subsequently, an inner subdural neomembrane (on the arachnoid side) is formed so that, finally, both neomembranes surround the SDC.53⇓⇓–56 Particularly the thicker outer neomembrane is highly vascularized. CSF accumulation communicating freely with the subarachnoid space-SAS), or an effusion. 1999;82 (4): 155-6. These would also require a harmonization of methodology and terminology as a precondition. Brain Inj. Acute, post-traumatic subdural hygromas, in contrast to benign chronic subdural hygromas, may be life-threatening. Note the absence of membranes and remote blood products within the hygromas, indicating that these are less likely to represent chronic SDHs. A subdural hygroma (SDG) is a collection of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), without blood, located under the dural membrane of the brain. Subdural hygromas are encountered in all age-groups but are overall most common in the elderly 7. At least 4 different scenarios have been proposed as explanations for the mixed-density pattern, and 3 of them may be deduced from only 1 single traumatic event (Table 2, upper part).22,28, Scenario 4 (“acute-on-chronic” variant in Table 2) can often be excluded when an acute severe shaking event is suspected because acute rebleeding from cSDH-associated neomembranes is not associated with the typical acute symptomatology of AHT.22,24 Then, additional MR imaging and serial neuroimaging may provide more information.68,69. A subdural hygroma is the accumulation of clear or xanthochromic CSF within the subdural space. Two cases are presented in which a rapidly enlarging subdural hygroma either prevented improvement over a 1â2 week period or resulted in rapid deterioration of the patient. Retinal hemorrhages typically found in many locations, within several layers, disseminated, widespread from the center to the periphery, and with or without additional retinoschisis or intravitreal hemorrhage. As time â¦ However, the large body of literature allows the differentiation of at least the following 6 entities. I. Kim et al. At least 5 possibilities of interpretation, besides SDHy and SDHHy, compose nearly all time-related SDH stages from hyperacute to chronic (Table 2, lower part).22 Hence, a reliable diagnosis and age estimation of the SDC are frequently not possible without additional MR imaging and serial neuroimaging, respectively.
