system implementation that was not existent at the time of those encounters. Average hourly drain output before symptom onset was 9.2 ml per hour, or a daily average of 221 ml per day. The total volume of intraoperative CSF loss was not recorded, but all CSF leaks were repaired immediately upon detection. Intracranial Hemorrhage All 8 patients were symptomatic postoperatively. Symptom onset ranged from immediately after surgery to postoperative Day 3, and symptoms included headache (n = 1), aphasia (n = 1), seizure (n = 1), and altered mental status (n = 4). No

during infancy. The overall mortality rate is estimated at 65%. 2 Intracranial hemorrhage is a rare complication of MLT; only 3 such cases have been reported, 5 , 8 and none of these has been presented in the neurosurgical literature. We describe the case of a female with a prenatally diagnosed intracranial mass who, at birth, had multiple cutaneous lesions suggestive of MLT. Case Report Prenatal Examination Hydrocephalus and cerebellar hypoplasia interpreted as a Dandy-Walker variant were diagnosed in a female by using prenatal cranial ultrasound

small subdural hematoma evacuated. Then, at a depth of 3 cm, a well-organized intracerebral hematoma was found and evacuated. Pre-infusion AHF levels ranged from 25% to 36%, and post-infusion values ranged from 56% to 75%. The patient still has dysphasia and severe motor impairment despite physical therapy accompanied by AHF replacement. Discussion In hemophilia, intracranial hemorrhage may follow slight trauma. The initial trauma was quite mild in three of our patients. In the fourth patient, trauma was suspected, due to the presence of the hematoma on

S pontaneous intracranial hemorrhage in childhood has been a relatively neglected subject in pediatric and neurosurgical journals, although it has been known since 1871 5 that children may die from intracranial hemorrhage due to a ruptured congenital saccular aneurysm. Most reports of juvenile cases of bleeding aneurysm and arteriovenous malformation describe single cases. 3, 6, 7, 11, 12, 24, 28, 29, 33 It is very difficult to find information on the subject of intracranial hemorrhage of other etiology; hemophilia is a notable exception.

implantation of DBS electrodes carries a small risk of intracranial hemorrhage. The incidence of intracranial hemorrhage associated with DBS implantation procedures has been reported to range from 1.0% to 3.4%. 1–9 As the number of DBS procedures increases, the number of DBS lead removal procedures performed is also increasing due to infection, erosion, lead breakage, and suboptimal placement. Although the risk of intracranial hemorrhage from placement of DBS leads has been well reported, there is no published literature regarding the risk of intracranial hemorrhage after

I ntracranial hemorrhage is a relatively common and often devastating complication associated with leukemia patients with a prevalence estimated to be as high as 15%. Intracranial hemorrhage accounts for approximately 70% of all cerebrovascular accidents 6 and an estimated 5% of deaths in this patient population. 9 The cause of ICH in patients with leukemia appears to be multifactorial that is contingent upon a myriad of factors, including blood vessel wall rupture secondary to leukocyte infiltration, thrombocytopenia, platelet dysfunction, and

comparing those who experience postoperative CHS after CAS versus those who have the condition following CEA. Improvements in surgical and endovascular techniques have reduced the incidence of ischemic stroke following CEA and CAS, respectively; as a result, intracranial hemorrhage associated with CHS may become a major cause of morbidity and death following carotid artery revascularization. 1 The study group of the Japanese Society for Treatment at Neck in Cerebrovascular Disease retrospectively collected cases of carotid artery stenosis treated with CEA or CAS over

There are numerous reports describing the utility of iMR imaging in neurosurgi-cal procedures, especially with respect to the extent of resection. 1 , 2 , 6 , 7 , 9 However, the degree to which iMR imaging may improve outcomes in the pediatric population remains undefined. We report on two cases of unanticipated intracranial hemorrhaging in children undergoing craniotomies in an iMR imaging suite. In both cases, the use of iMR imaging (0.5-tesla unit, Signa SP, GE Medical Systems) facilitated the prompt and effective identification of these unanticipated

present series, no subdural or intracerebellar hemorrhage was found. Fig. 1. Incidence of various types of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) in 112 premature infants. I: no ICH; II: ICH with rupture into the ventricular system; III: ICH without rupture into the ventricular system. IVH = intraventricular hemorrhage; SEH = subependymal hemorrhage; CPH = choroid plexus hemorrhage; SAH = subarachnoid hemorrhage. The general autopsy disclosed some kind of pulmonary disease in all cases, including hyaline membrane disease, hemorrhage, pneumonia, aspiration, and
