ABSTRACT
Althouth the connective-tissue membrane surrounding a subdural hematoma has been described as hyalinized, calcified partially or in patches, a totally organized, calcified or ossified chronic subdural hematoma in the elderly patient is extremely rate. We report an asymptomatic case of a huge calcified chronic subdural hematoma in a 67-year-old male patient who had no previous trauma history. Computerized tomographic(CT) scan showed an oval-shaped mass with totally calcified rim at the left frontotemporoparietal region. After en-block removal of the calcified mass, postoperative CT scan showed intracerebral hematoma at the deepest portion of the calcified mass that was partially adhesive to the pia mater. The patient suffered from a transient motor aphasia after the operation. Relevant literatures are briefly reviewed.
Key Words: Asymptomatic calcified chronic subdural hematoma; Ossified; Elderly patient; Computerized tomographic scan
