Hémorragies intracérébrales supratentorielles [Supratentorial intracerebral hemorrhage]
Schweizerische Medizinische Wochenschrift
Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article ; Review
The data were reviewed of 76 patients with supratentorial intracerebral hemorrhage, including 38 lobar (LH) and 38 basal ganglion (BGH) hemorrhages. Our aim was to define the clinical and tomodensitometric profiles of the two lesions. Men seem to be at higher risk of BGH and women more frequently of LH. Among the risk factors and causes, only chronic hypertension proved to be clearly associated with BGH. Wide variability of clinical course was observed. However, LH was associated more frequently with headache, initial seizure and show installation over more than 12 hours. CT sections revealed association of intraventricular hemorrhage with BGH. No difference in short term prognosis was found between LH and BGH.
