case description
A traumatic intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) is a common neurosurgical pathology that affects about 20 of 100,000 people every year with a mortality of at least 40%. However, a specific etiology, cannot be identified in about 30% of spontaneous ICH. Here, we present a rare case of ICH related to a patient's previously undiagnosed cryoglobinemia.
