RESUMO

São relatados dois casos de metastases cerebrais de melanoma maligno cuja manifestação clínica foi de hemorragia cérebro-meníngea. É feita a revisão da literatura pertinente, enfatizando-se a importância da inclusão das metastases no diagnóstico diferencial das hemorragias cerebrais e da realização de biópsia da parede de hematomas intra-cerebrais espontâneos.


SUMMARY

Two cases of intra-cerebral haemorrhage secondary to malignant melanoma metastasis are reported. When dealing with subarachoid haemorrhages, one should think of brain secondaries and a biopsy should always be performed whenever a spontaneous intra-cerebral hematoma is found.
