PMID:  6701757     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case is presented of metastatic dural carcinomatosis associated with a thickened subdural membrane similar to those found in association with posttraumatic chronic subdural hematomas. In this case burr-hole drainage was attempted as a result of findings on computed tomography scanning that suggested a right frontal chronic subdural hematoma. However, no chronic subdural hematoma or effusion was found. The pathology, radiographic findings, and clinical features of this phenomenon are discussed.
