Subdural Hygroma
Dear Sir,
My Father's MRI report gives the following impression "The non contrast MRI findings of brain are suggestive of small old lacunar infractions at right basal ganglia and adjoining paraventricular white matter with features of mild diffuse celebral atrophy.Bilateral subdural hygroma also noted at the celebral frontal and fronto parietal regions.Please give your suggestions and advice on this subject.

Hello.

The MRI suggests an old injury to the brain. The injury could have been a vascular event such as bleeding, or a head injury. Was there any shunting done?

The hygroma is a collection of cerebrospinal fluid. It is known to originate after sudden decompression, such as in shunting. A chronic hematoma can also give rise to a hygroma.

It will be difficult to give suggestions only on the basis of the MRI findings.

Regards

Hello.

The treatment will involve a possible drainage of the subdural hygroma. Draining the hygroma will reduce any symptoms such as confused behavior or disorientation. The origin seems to be a bleed. He probably has hypertension. Appropriate control of blood pressure fluctuations is necessary.

The lost functions due to the basal ganglia infarcts and the cerebral atrophy can not be regained. He may need certain multivitamin supplementation and some neuroprotective drugs.

Hello.

The decision to drain the subdural hygroma has to be taken by the Neurosurgeon. Often, small hygromas which do not produce pressure symptoms are left untouched. The technique of drainage depends on the location and size of the hygromas. It may be a small OPD procedure or an inpatient admission may be needed.

There are no serious side effects from the procedure. He may have headaches for some time after the procedure.
