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.

Embryology The development of the meninges starts early in gestation and reaches the basic adult forms by the end of the first trimester. Meningeal precursors are derived from both neural crest and mesodermal cells. As the neural tube fuses at 22 to 24 days of gestation, a single layer of cells, with some attachments to the neural crest, surrounds the developing neural axis. A thicker, looser collection of mesenchymal cells further covers the neural tube starting around day 24 to 28 and completely envelops the developing spinal cord and brain by day 33 to 41.
