  • Look Inside

The authors reported a case of subdural effusion secondary to dural metastasis of prostatic cancer. A 61-year-old man was referred for headache, vomit-ing and gait disturbance. He had undergone hormonal therapy for prostatic cancer. He showed a mild left hemiparesis and anemia without bleeding. CT-scan dis-closed a multilobular crescent shaped low density area in the right hemisphere. Under the diagnosis of chronic subdural hematoma, burr hole irrigation therapy was performed. Xanthochromic fluid was evacuated from the subdural space, in which no tumor cells were shown to exist.
