Abstract

A 65-year-old woman became obtunded following routine laminectomy and was found to have bilateral cerebellar haemorrhage and convexity subarachnoid haemorrhage. We discuss the possible mechanisms of remote cerebellar haemorrhage—cerebellar haemorrhage that develops after spinal or intracranial surgery—and the associated ‘zebra sign’, caused by convexity subarachnoid haemorrhage.
