Subacute parenchymal hemorrhage

A small fluid collection is noted in the superior left thalamus, with a complete hemosiderin rim demonstrated on the coronal T2* GRE scan. This 50 year old patient presented with a hypertensive hemorrhage on CT in the left thalamus 2 months prior to the MR. The residual of such bleeds on MR can be as illustrated, or simply a hemosiderin cleft with the central fluid resorbed.
