Most of untreated pontine hematoma are known to be fatal. Even though the patient may survive, the sequelae of pontine hematoma is serious. Fourteen cases of pontine hematoma who were treated either surgically or conservatively were analysed. Among nine cases treated surgically, three showed good recovery, three died postoperatively, and moderate to severe disability remained in three cases. On the other hand, conservative treatment resulted in one good recovery, one moderate disability, and four deaths. We hope to emphasize the efficacy of surgical treatment on pontine hematoma.
