Four cases presented with severe head injury and two with mild head injury as per Glasgow coma scale score. Mode of injury was acceleration and deceleration in all the cases. NCCT and CT Angiogram brain were done in all the cases which revealed isolated intraventricular hemorrhage without any vascular or tumoral pathology. All the patients were managed conservatively.
