Teaching neuroimages: Burkitt dural lymphoma mimicking a subacute subdural hematoma.

Résumé : A 59-year-old woman with no history of trauma presented with severe headaches and right-sided weakness. A CT scan showed a left hemispheric isodense subdural collection thought to be consistent with a subacute subdural hematoma (figure 1A). The patient underwent a single parietal burr hole for evacuation, but the neurosurgeon found subdural fleshy tissue and performed a biopsy. Immediate postoperative MRI showed a homogeneous hypercellular subdural mass (figure 1, B–F).1 Pathology was consistent with Burkitt lymphoma (figure 2). Retrospectively, the homogeneous density of the collection argued against hematoma. In nonemergent situations, an atypical radiologic appearance of a subdural hematoma may suggest the need for further radiologic investigations before surgical evacuation.2
