Unusual Posttraumatic Porencephaly
An unusual case of posttraumatic porencephaly preceded by neither overt cerebral contusion nor hemorrhage is reported. The cerebral cortex just above the porencephalic cyst was found intra operatively to be partially herniated into a fracture line, while the cortex elsewhere was completely intact. The porencephalic cyst communicated with the lateral ventricle. Apparently, brain herniation and the cyst-ventricle communication can be causative factors in the occurrence and growth of post traumatic porencephaly.doi:10.2176/nmc.31.169 pmid:1715054 fatcat:n7ks5klqjrcibmnvp3jdnkbhgm
