RESUMO

Estudando casos com deslocamento intracraniano de massa encefálica e hemorragia secundária do tronco cerebral o autor assinala lesões ao nível de artérias Os tipos de lesões encontradas sugerem uma etiologia mecânica. São discutidos os demais fatores e o achado de hemorragias venosas e capilares. O deslocamento caudal do tronco cerebral é interpretado como o fator lesivo mais importante.


SUMMARY

Intracranial cerebral herniations with secondary lesions in the brain stem are reported. The secondary lesions founded on the upper brain stem of 23 encephala with cerebral herniations are described. Hemorrhages in arteries were seen in all the brains. The lesions points to a mechanical etiology, the caudal displacement of the brain stem being the most important factor. Areas of ischemic infarction were found in the brain stem in all the cases; it is sugested that they were produced by factors others than the causative of the hemorrhagic lesions
