Abstract

We report the case of a 55-year-old man, hypertensive, who presented to the Emergency Room with intense occipital cephaleea, nausea, vomiting and disturbance of balance. The peculiarity of this case was given by the simultaneous presence of two brain hemorrhagic lesions and an unusual hypodensity with digitiform borders at cerebral CT scan, which suggested a different etiology than hypertension and leaded us to further investigations, which confirmed the diagnosis of lung cancer with multiple brain metastases.
