Abstract This study retrospectively analyzes the CT findings of 50 patients with spontaneous intracerebral haematomas and correlates them with the clinical condition at admission and the outcome. The volume of the haematoma was well correlated with the outcome and was a very useful indicator for surgery. In patients with haematoma volume lower than 25 ml and above 80 ml there was no indication for surgery; in patients with haematoma volume between 25 and 50 ml the operation does not significantly modify the survival rate, but favours a more rapid and complete recovery of the neurological deficits, whereas a haematoma volume between 50 and 80 ml favours the rate of survival.
