Lobar and subdural haemorrhage

Case contributed by Dr Bruno Di Muzio

Presentation

Patient with Alzheimer's disease, fever and lowered level of consciousness.

Patient Data

Age: 82
Gender: Male
CT

CT BRAIN

Hemorrhagic focus in the right frontal lobe, flanked by oedema of the adjacent parenchyma. Extension of bleeding for the subdural space along the right cerebral hemisphere, cerebellum tent and space interhemispheric.

Case Discussion

Large frontal lobar haemorrhage extending into the subdural space. In an elderly patient this is most likely due to cerebral amyloid angiopathy rather than an underlying lesion, however no further exams were available.
