  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reported a rare case of primary interhemispheric subdural abscess. Twenty-three cases of this patholo-gical condition have been reviewed. In those reports, however, findings of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were not referred to. In this report, MRI find-ings in this pathological condition, in addition to X-ray computed tomography (CT), is mentioned. A 22-year-old man, who had suffered from headache and vomit-ing for 2 weeks, suddenly became drowsy and left-hemiparetic. The X-ray CT scan on admission showed a well-circumscribed low density area in contact with the falx in the right parieto-occipital region.
