Cortical laminar necrosis usually occurs secondary to infarcts or hypoxia, however other causes, including hypoglycemia, status epilepticus and immunosuppressive therapy have been reported. To our knowledge, CLN is not a phenomenon expected in the case of trauma. We report a unique case of delayed post-traumatic CLN which occurred 30 days after the initial trauma, without any proven cause apart from possible spreading depolarization induced spreading ischemia from adjacent subarachnoid hemorrhage with distinct radiologic features.
