Rt cereballar infarction with partial obstruction to 4th ventricle with dialatation of 3rd & lateral ventricles.Rt superior cerebellar artery infarction with hydrocephalus due to partial obstruction of 4th ventricle. Continue anticoagulant. Pt lost follow up probably not taking anticoagulant.Needs cardiac evaluation Also check for any other csuse for young stroke. Rept Ct 24 hrs for looking for the status of hydrocephalus.Refer to neurosurgeon for hydrocephalus

Patient underwent post fossa decompression with infactectomy ,pt improved in sensorium and after 6 hours extubated , still have obstructive hydrocephalus ,under monitoring and decongestant, EVD for sos if required

Bilateral Cerebellar hemispherical hyperdensities ( bleed) with obstructive hydrocephalus. Needs decongestants, neurosurgical intervention for craniotomy or EVD. pt. On which anti coagulants? What is INR?

Vertigo diasias tension headache vertigo tables daily two one week myospaz tablet daily two five days panccef az 250mg daily two five days tossex expectorant two teaspoon daily two times day

Cerebellar bleed Suggest: Anticonvulsants IV Mannitol Check coagulation profile Inj.Vit.K 10mgs IV/OD FFP transfusion Neurosurgery opinion BT CT PT CBC ECG 2D-Echo Routine labs

Since as mentioned there is no hyperdensity INR 1.1 it could also be a posterior circulation stroke However needs further evaluation Suggest: MRI Brain with DWI
