Abstract

OBJECTIVE: We report 81 patients with a traumatic intracerebellar hemorrhagic contusion or hematoma managed between 1996 and 1998 at 13 Italian neurosurgical centers. METHODS: Each center provided data about patients' clinicoradiological findings, management, and outcomes, which were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS: A poor result occurred in 36 patients (44.4%).

In Group 1 (39/81 cases; GCS score, ≥8), the outcome was favorable in 95% of cases. In Group 2 (42/81 cases; GCS score,
