WD of MCPs can also occur after pontine hemorrhage
and central pontine myelinolysis, not only pons infarction. Moreover, in clinical practice, WD may mimic ischemic cerebrovascular disease due to similar signals on MRI, especially in patients with multiple vascular risk factors.
The study has determined that the 11 other children did not die of dengue but of other illnesses, including congenital heart disease, brain infection, pontine hemorrhage
and cardiac arrhythmia.

--seizures at onset of ICH are rare, reported at 5,62% of patients, especially in the frontal lobe hemorrhage and massive pontine hemorrhage
Distribution of the cases according to the location of the hemorrhage Cerebellar Hemorrhage 8 Ponto-Mesencephallic Hemorrhage 3 Mesencephalic Hemorrhage 3 Pontine Hemorrhage 10 Ventricular Hemorrhage 4 Occipital Hemorrhage 4 Temporal Hemorrhage 11 Parietal Hemorrhage 18 Frontal Hemorrhage 9 Thalamic Hemorrhage 32 Basal Nucleus Hemorrhage 58 Note: Table made from bar graph.
One notable case study discusses delayed neurological deterioration including worsening of dysarthria and ataxia several months after pontine hemorrhage
(Menezes Cordeiro, Tavares, Reimao, Geraldes, & Ferro, 2013).
The case fatality rate was found to be higher in cerebellar haemorrhage cases (23.8%) compared to pontine hemorrhage
It is interesting to note that in the current work, a somewhat higher percentage (4) of clinically significant cases (subarachnoid and intracerebral hemorrhage, Pontine hemorrhage
, arachnoid cyst, cerebritis, brain tumor, malignant otitis externa with osteomylitis of the skull bone) were found than those observed by other authors.
The causes of death for the other four cases ranged from congenital heart disease, brain infection, pontine hemorrhage
, and cardiac arrhythmia.
