Intracerebral hemorrage

E R Gasenzer, E A M Neugebauer
The composer Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and his sister, Fanny Hensel, both died in 1847 of intracerebral hemorrhage. Also their father and grandfather had died of cerebral strokes. Their cases show the dramatic progress of an arteriovenous malformation in the nineteenth century, but also the development of new romantic styles in the history of western music. Since the late nineteenth and the early twentieth century, neurology and neurosurgery had developed as highly specialized medical subjects. Today, neurosurgery is a highly developed medical subject, and the neurosurgeon uses high-tech equipment for neurosurgical procedures and intensive care...

Iatrogenic gas embolism is a rare but serious problem that has been documented in almost all medical specialties including gynecology. We present a 49-year-old woman undergoing operative hysteroscopy and myomectomy, who sustained sudden hypotension and decrease in the end-tidal carbon dioxid levels during the procedure. Systemic gas embolism was confirmed by echocardiographic evidence of bubbles in both right and left cardiac cavities and a rise of troponin. Hyperbaric oxygen was rapidly administered in addition to maintenance of vital functions and anti-thrombotic prevention with calciparin...

Brain metastases from hepatocarcinoma are exceptional and only a few cases have been reported in the literature, mainly from Far-Eastern countries. Clinical diagnosis in asymptomatic patients with preserved liver function is difficult and usually late. In some cases, cerebral metastasis is the initial manifestation of HCC and patients may develop intracerebral hemorrage and have a stroke-like presentation. We report on the first Italian case of cerebral metastases from multifocal hepatocellular carcinoma in an asymptomatic HbsAg negative patient with unknown HCV related chronic hepatitis and no evidence of liver cirrhosis...

Intracerebral hemorrhage ocurring after chronic subdural hematoma evacuation, is a rare and very serious postoperative complication. The sudden increase of cerebral blood flow in the hemisphere beneath the hematoma, is the most likely mechanism responsible for this situation. Two new cases of intracerebral hemorrage after evacuation of chronic subdural hematomas are reported.

BACKGROUND: Despite post-mortem examination and autopsy, many cases of sudden infant death (SID) remain unexplained. The aim of this study was to assess usefulness of CT-scan in the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). POPULATION: Twenty-three cases of SIDS had a post-mortem CT-scan evaluation of skull and brain. The pictures were retrospectively reviewed by several independent radiologists who were unaware of the circumstances of death and results of autopsy. RESULTS: Aspects of pneumatocele, probably due to lumbar puncture were found in 6 cases...
