Abstract

Background and purpose: Primary pontine hemorrhage (PPH) accounts aproximately for about 5-10% of intracranial hemorrhages, and PPHs are known to have a much less uniform prognosis. We aimed to evaluate the clinical and radiological predictors affecting the mortality in 32 patients with PPH.
