Abstract


Pineal cysts (PCs) are often encountered as incidental findings in intracranial images. The vast majority of cysts are normally asymptomatic and clinically benign. Bleeding into the cysts, which leads to neurological symptoms and signs, is considered to be quite rare. The authors illustrate a newly identified complication of PC in a 56-year-old woman who characterized by headache of sudden onset and vomiting. MRI disclosed a small hemorrhagic PC without narrowing of the cerebral aqueduct. The patient was managed conservatively without any surgical interventions, and she remained symptom-free over a period of 15-year follow-up. The description of this case adds to the limited literature on the series in which nonsurgical treatments had a role in the care for patients with PC complicated by intracystic hemorrhage.
