ABSTRACT
Bilateral traumatic hemorrhage of the basal ganglia is an extremely rare neuropathologic entity. This report describes a 50-year-old man with bilateral basal ganglia hemorrhage with occipital fracture of the skull after head trauma. The mechanism of development of traumatic hemorrhage of the basal ganglia has been not clear. But, it is presumed to be secondary to rupture of the lenticulostriate or anterior choroidal artery by shearing as a result of acceleration/deceleration forces. We briefly summarize our uncommon case and discuss its possible mechanisms.
Key Words: Basal ganglia; Hemorrhage; Contusions; Head trauma
