Cerebellar hemorrhage in adults. Clinical and computerized tomographic findings

Computerized Radiology : Official Journal of the Computerized Tomography Society
L A Weisberg

Abstract

The clinical and CT findings in 14 patients with cerebellar hemorrhage are reviewed. Two normotensive patients had an underlying vascular malformation. Six patients had poorly-controlled hypertension of short duration; the cerebellar hematomas were quite large causing significant mass effect, intraventricular extension and ventricular enlargment. Four of these patients died and two had residual neurological deficit following operation. Five other patients had better-controlled hypertension of longer duration with other systemic complications including myocardial infarction and transient ischemic attacks; the hematomas were smaller with minimal mass effect and no intraventricular extension. Their outcome was better and three did not require operation. In these five patients, clinical outcome was not better in the operated than in the non-operated patients. One normotensive young patient had spontaneous bilateral cerebellar hematomas which required surgical evacuation with good clinical recovery.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Torsion Dystonia

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Generating Insulin-Secreting Cells

Reprogramming cells or using induced pluripotent stem cells to generate insulin-secreting cells has significant therapeutic implications for diabetics. Here is the latest research on generation of insulin-secreting cells.

Central Pontine Myelinolysis

Central Pontine Myelinolysis is a neurologic disorder caused most frequently by rapid correction of hyponatremia and is characterized by demyelination that affects the central portion of the base of the pons. Here is the latest research on this disease.

Epigenome Editing

Epigenome editing is the directed modification of epigenetic marks on chromatin at specified loci. This tool has many applications in research as well as in the clinic. Find the latest research on epigenome editing here.
