Cerebellar haemorrhage after supratentorial craniotomy is a rare complication Because of its significant morbidity and mortality rates, being aware of this complication is important for early diagnosis. In a 30-year-old male with multiple intracranial cavernomas, remote cerebellar haemorrhage (RCH) was observed after removal of symptomatic left temporal lesion. The lateral wall of the temporal horn that was tightly attached to the cavernoma was also opened and excessive drainage of the CSF occurred. The haemorrhage is attributed to opening of the ventricle wall and excessive drainage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) during the procedure.
