Remote intracerebral hemorrhage underwent drainage subdural hematoma. What are the causes?. Case report and literature review
Introduction: Remote intracerebral hemorrhage is an infrequent neurosurgical complication, which occurs in up to 18% of intracranial procedures and even less in spinal surgery.
Clinical case: A 89 years old man with a right subdural hematoma, who underwent drainage by craniotomy, but in the control CT scan presented a left intraparenchymal haematoma at occipito-temporal zone, and with intraventricular blood.
Conclusion: There are some theories that have tried to explain the causes of remote intracerebral hemorrhage, as is the hyperperfusion syndrome, hypertension, amyloid angiopathy, venous infarctation or other clinical associated conditions such as the use of oral anticoagulants.
