Abstract

Thirteen patients with subdural empyema underwent arteriography preoperatively and three were restudied postoperatively. Arterial vascular changes were found in nine cases and consisted of localized or diffuse arterial irregularities. In two cases the arterial changes resolved with effective therapy. These arterial changes are similar in appearance and response to therapy to those noted with meningitis; however, in this series they were shown to have occurred in seven cases with subdural empyema but without associated meningitis. Therefore, subdural empyema alone may cause localized or diffuse arterial irregularities.
