Multiple subdural hematomas associated with breakdancing.


A 17-year-old, previously healthy, male breakdancer presented with a three-month history of crescendo headache and newly identified papilledema. The patient was found to have four separate, unilateral extracranial collections. At surgery, three were subdural hematomas, and one was a probable arachnoid cyst containing a hematoma. These were removed, and the patient made an uneventful recovery with no neurosurgical sequelae. The possibility of serious head injury must be considered when evaluating headache in youngsters who engage in this new and apparently popular dance form.
