haematoma: to operate or not to operate?
The influence of the subthalamic nucleus on intracerebellar
connectivity is also lost .
Craniotomy revealed subdural and intracerebellar
jelly-like tumorous tissue.

granulocytic sarcoma complicating acute myelogenous leukemia: A case report and review of the literature.
A dramatic example was a young boy who developed a multi-focal brain tumour following intracerebellar
and intrathecal injection of human fetal neural stem cells for ataxia telangiectasia.

Other intradural hematomas such as subarachnoid, intracerebral or intracerebellar
hematomas should also be differentiated from subdural hematoma.
Though there are no randomized studies defining specific conducts to this entity, at present, it is believed that in the case of cerebellar hematomas with a diameter larger than 3cm, in the case of a compression of the brainstem or in cases of hydrocephalus provoked by intracerebellar
hemorrhages, there is a well defined benefit of the surgical evacuation of the lesion.
A recent report on a boy with ataxia telangectasia who developed a multifocal brain tumour following treatment with human fetal neural stem cells (administered via intracerebellar
and intrathecal injection) is a case in point.
These findings were compatible with the diagnosis of meningoencephalitis with intracerebellar
