Computerized tomography in the management of intracranial bleeding in hemophilia.


Journal Article

Computerized tomography was used to evaluate the severity of six episodes of suspected intracranial bleeding in four patients with hemophilia. In all instances the CT scan rapidly provided information on the extent and location of the intracranial hemorrhage. Results of the initial scan provided a rational basis for therapy, and subsequent scans were a noninvasive means of evaluating the effects of treatment. If available, computerized tomography is a valuable aid in the management of the hemophiliac patient with intracranial bleeding.
