Answer

Other signs of cerebellar or brainstem involvement include the following:

  • Gait or limb ataxia

  • Vertigo or tinnitus

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Hemiparesis or quadriparesis

  • Hemisensory loss or sensory loss of all 4 limbs

  • Eye movement abnormalities resulting in diplopia or nystagmus

  • Oropharyngeal weakness or dysphagia

  • Crossed signs (ipsilateral face and contralateral body)

Many other stroke syndromes are associated with intracerebral hemorrhage, ranging from mild headache to neurologic devastation. At times, a cerebral hemorrhage may present as a new-onset seizure.
