Brainstem hematoma is a rare clinical occurrence that has been diagnosed more frequently since the introduction of CT and MR imaging. The aetiology of the condition is generally unknown though a few cases have been described in hemophilia (Masson et al., 1984). The clinical course can vary from case to case, having fatal results in some patients and benign resolution in others (Sancesario et al., 1984; Hommel et al., 1985). The present case of brainstem hematoma presented three rare pathological findings on otoneurological examination, demonstrating the usefulness of this diagnostic approach in brainstem lesions.
