Abstract:

A 46 y/o male patient with a chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH), developing long after a head trauma and an ipsilateral arachnoid cyst (AC), was operated and during the removal of the CSDH a 1x1 cm extracerebral tumor was noticed.

This paper points to the role of MRI in the diagnosing such intracranial processes.
