CASTLE, M.; BARRENA, C.; SAMPRON, N.  and  ARRESE, I.. Remote cerebellar haemorrhage after lumbar arthrodesis: Case report and literature review. Neurocirugía [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.6, pp.574-578. ISSN 1130-1473.

Remote cerebellar haemorrhage (RCH) is a rare complication of spinal surgery, less frequent than the RCH observed after an intracranial surgery. The patients principally complained of headache or were presented with deterioration in mental status. We report a case of RCH in a 55 years old woman that underwent lumbar arthrodesis with occult dural defect. We review the literature, analysing its causes and therapeutic implications.

Keywords : Remote cerebellar haemorrhage; Spinal surgery; Cerebrospinal fluid leakage.
