Delayed intracerebral hemorrhage as demonstrated by CT scanning

Neuroradiology. 1979 Jul 1;18(1):43-6. doi: 10.1007/BF00346211.


Three patients are presented who developed delayed intracerebral hematomas after head injury. Two patients had essentially negative CT scans on admission and developed intracerbral hematomas within 24 h after injury. They required surgical treatment and had fatal outcomes. The third patient presented with an epidural hematoma on CT scan, developed an intracerebral hematoma 48 h after evacuation of the epidural hematoma, and did well with conservative management.
