Intracerebral haemorrhage in primary and metastatic brain tumours

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Intracerebral haemorrhage may both be a presenting manifestation in unrecognised brain tumour or - more frequently - take place in the disease course of known/suspected brain tumour due to diagnostic/ therapeutic procedures, including biopsy, locoregional treatments and anti-angiogenic therapies. Apart from the difficulties inherent to accurate neuroradiological diagnosis in selected cases with small tumour volume, the main clinical problem that neurologists face is represented by decision making in prophylaxis/treatment of venous thromboembolism in these patients. These points are briefly discussed and available evidence on the last point is commented on.
