Pontine bleed

Thank-you all

NCCT shows bleeding in mid brain Probably bleeding due to fall down or hypertension Poor prognosis to be explained Report show uncontrolled diabetes and high range of pus cells and albuminuria Antibiotic like azitreonam iv TDS Injection levipil 500 mg bd Injection phenytoin 100 mg tds Injection pan 40 iv bd inj menitol 100 mg iv bd Injection cognistar iv For sugar insulin according to sliding scale

Midbrain or pontine haemorrhage likely hypertensive. Conservative and supportive treatment only. Guarded prognosis

Agreed ncct shows pontine or mid brain hemorrhage hypodense area is also seen in rt parietal area probably old infarct as pt is kco of ht dm and on anticonvulsants as well his reports shows uncontrolled bsl as random is more than 321mg and urine shows 3+albuminurea and plenty of pus cells suggesting urinary infection hence further workout and control the sugar with insulin and infection with macrobiotic like meropanum with defined mx of CVA
