There is a massive parenchymal haemorrhage centered in the left basal ganglia and temporal lobe showing a mass effect characterised by lateral ventricles compression, midline shift, left subfalcine and transtentorial brain herniation, as well as diffuse effacement of cerebral sulci. There is also subarachnoid haemorrhage with blood within the ventricles and along the tentorium cerebellum.
These CT images demonstrate an extensive intracranial haemorrhage with clear signs of raised intracranial pressure and compression over normal brain structures. Unfortunately, the patient passed away fewer hours later this exam, the cause of this massive haemorrhage remains unknown.
