Abstract

We observed a case of superficial siderosis (SS) of the central nervous system caused by an hemorrhagic trauma forty years before. We questioned whether SS was the stabilized effect of a remote bleeding or an evolutionary process indirectly related to the trauma. Moreover, we aimed to evaluate whether an iron chelator can affect the level of iron deposition. Magnetic Resonance (MRI) demonstrated iron accumulation mainly on the surface of the cerebellum and brain stem. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) microscopic analysis revealed few siderophages; CSF ferritin level was 76 ng/mL (reference value
