CT and MRI in acute hemorrhagic stroke.

We report the case of a woman presenting with an acute onset of hemiplegia. MRI was performed and showed a hyperintense mass on diffusion-weighted imaging, with areas of high signal intensity on T2* imaging and T2/PD imaging. T1-weighted imaging showed a more inhomogeneous lesion with a central isointense part corresponding to the acute clot, as well as a peripheral crescent of hypointense plasma; since another mass lesion could not be acutely excluded, computed tomography was performed immediately afterwards, showing a hyperdense hematoma. The patient was taken to the neurosurgical operating theater, where she underwent decompressive craniotomy and evacuation of the hematoma.
