COBO DOLS, M. et al. Dural metastases with subdural hematoma from prostate cancer. Oncología (Barc.) [online]. 2005, vol.28, n.8, pp.55-59. ISSN 0378-4835.
We reported a case of subdural effusion secondary to dural metastasis of prostatic cancer. A 54-year-old man was referred for headache, vomiting and gait disturbance. He had undergone hormonal therapy and docetaxel-based chemotherapy for prostatic cancer. The magnetic resonance imaging of the brain showed extensive leptomeningeal carcinomatosis and cranial dural metastases, and subdural hematoma. This is a very rare situation and bad prognosis.
