Özet

High-velocity trauma with acceleration/deceleration forces turns into shear stress over lenticulostriate or anterior choroidal arteries that lead to basal ganglia hemorrhage. Traumatic basal ganglia hematoma has rarely been described in pediatric population. The aim of this study was to present our clinical series of pediatric patients with traumatic basal ganglia hematoma and to analyze the prognostic indicators of traumatic basal ganglia hematoma.
