ABSTRACT
The authors report a case of calcified chronic subdural hematoma with arachnoid cyst. A 45-year-old man had a 30-year history of epilepsy. Brain CT revealed lentiform calcified mass lesion with a cyst on the right temporal lobe, and an osteoplastic craniotomy was performed. The mass contained a clay-like substance with shiny crystal. And microscopically, a thick fibrous membrane with a band of calcification was seen.Postoperatively, the frequency of epolepsy decreased. To the author's knowledge, this is the first report to document calcified chronic subdural hematoma associated with arachnoid cyst.
Key Words: Calcified chronic subdural hematoma; Arachnoid cyst; Epilepsy
