D. Anderson Cancer Center. 7 Historically, the existence of a subdural space has been advocated as a naturally occurring space, or potential space similar to those found in serous cavities such as pleural, pericardial, or peritoneal cavities. Embryological and histological studies, however, do not support such a concept. 6 Instead, the characterization of the dural border cell layer identifies a structurally weak layer at the dura–arachnoid junction. Sandwiched between the dural layer dense in collagen and the arachnoid layer reinforced with cellular junctions, the dural border cell layer represents the plane of least resistance.
