Kronik subdural hematom genellikle erişkin hastalığı olmakla birlikte çocuklarda nadirdir.Bu yazıda 9 yaşında erkek hastada futbol oynarken kafasına top çarpmasına bağlı gelişen araknoid kist ile ilişkili kronik subdural hematom olgusunu sunduk. Mental durum değişikliği veya nörolojik bozukluk gözlenmedi.Tek burr hole ile hematom drenajı yapıldı. Bir hafta sonra, hasta saçlı deride şişlik şikayetiyle kliniğimize başvurdu. Fizik muayenede verteksten başlayan subkütanöz fluktuasyon mevcuttu. Yazarlar kronik subdural hematomun ameliyat sonrası döneminde gelişen nadir bir komplikasyonunu ve araknoid kist ile ilişkili spora bağlı kronik subdural hematom olgusu bildirmektedir.
Abstract Chronic subdural hematoma is predominantly a disease of the elderly and is rare in children. We report here a rare case of chronic subdural hematoma associated with arachnoid cyst in a 9-year-old child due to ball struck to his head while he was playing football. No altered mental state or focal neurological deficits were observed. The hematoma drainage was performed with one burr-hole. One week later, the patient was admitted to our clinic with complaint of scalp swelling. Physical examination revealed subcutaneous fluctuation beginning from the vertex. The authors reported a case of sports related chronic subdural hematoma in association with arachnoid cyst and a rare complication of subdural hematoma during postoperative period.
