Intraventricular Hemorrhage

Traumatic intraventricular hemorrhage is associated with diffuse axonal injury, deep gray matter injury, and brainstem contusion. An isolated intraventricular hemorrhage may be due to rupture of subependymal veins.

patient. Note the subarachnoid hemorrhage in the
sulci in the subarachnoid space (arrowheads).
