Thalamic hemorrhage. A study of 23 patients with diagnosis by computed tomography.
A series of 23 patients with thalamic hemorrhage with computed tomography confirmation is reported. Nine of these died, all had hematomas larger than 3.3 cm. The value of the syndrome of downward and convergent ocular deviation is stressed, and its possible mechanisms are analyzed. The characteristics and mechanisms of the pupillary abnormalities are reported, as well as the speech abnormalities observed in patients with lesions of the dominant hemisphere. Prognostic conclusions are drawn.
