Spontaneous rupture of arachnoid cyst into subdural space




I was asked for opinion when i was just walking by the OPD of hospital, couldn't resist clicking the image with my mobile phone. Hence the poor quality of image but the finding is well seen. Arachnoid cysts are known to present as spontaneous subdural hygroma. Also noted a snap shot of my Teleradiology centre in Delhi.

I have a doubt regarding differentiation between small arachnoid cyst and subdural hygroma... SS sir, can subdural hygroma cause remodelling of skull vault? I have a case otherwise appearing to be subdural hygroma but with thinning of skull vault in left frontal region.h/o an episode of seizure. No h/o trauma.
