Cerebellar hemorrhage as evaluated by computerized tomography.


Journal Article

Nine patients with cerebellar hemorrhage were examined initially with computerized tomographic (CT) scanning. CT appearance in combination with clinical state determined therapy. The most common presenting symptoms were headache, ataxia and vomiting, usually with alterations in the level of consciousness. Three patients were comatose. In five patients surgical evacuation of the hematoma was done and one of these died. Two who were moribund at presentation were not operated on and succumbed. The remaining two did not require operation and recovered. Early investigation with CT scanning considerably aided decisions as to the appropriate method of treatment.
