Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

We present a rare case of multiple intracranial hemorrhages that developed in an otherwise healthy patient, whose significant history was that of a myxomatous tumor that had been removed in a prior cardiothoracic surgery. The presentation of the patient was unique, and the findings were unexpected. The purpose of this article is to bring awareness to an uncommon disease pattern that, if missed or misdiagnosed, could end in significant morbidity, if not mortality. Appropriate imaging of a patient with a similar medical history is of the utmost importance.
