Chronic Encapsulated Intracerebral Hematoma: Endoscopic Removal as Minimally Invasive Surgery for a Patient with Alcoholic Cirrhosis



Chronic Encapsulated Intracerebral Hematoma: Endoscopic Removal as Minimally Invasive Surgery for a Patient with Alcoholic Cirrhosis



Nmc Case Report Journal 4(2): 51-53



Chronic encapsulated intracerebral hematoma (CEIH) is a rare cerebrovascular disease. Here, we describe a case of a patient with alcoholic cirrhosis and an abnormal coagulation state that was treated with minimally invasive endoscopic hematoma removal. A 54-year-old man presented with a 2-week history of incoherent speech, incontinence, and repeated stumbling. Laboratory analysis showed thrombocytopenia and the prolongation of prothrombin time due to alcoholic cirrhosis. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a large mass in the left parieto-occipital lobe suggesting a hematoma. Minimally invasive endoscopic hematoma removal was then performed. CEIH was diagnosed from the intraoperative findings of serous hematoma, a thin yellowish capsule, and old clots. The postoperative course was uneventful and there was no hematoma recurrence. In conclusion, endoscopic hematoma removal may be one of the options for the treatment of CEIH in patients with cirrhosis and an abnormal coagulation state.
