PMID:  841056     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Seven cases of ring blush following spontaneous and post-traumatic, subacute and chronic intracerebral hematoma are presented. As such a hematoma ages, a ring blush may be seen following contrast-agent enhancement. Serial CT demonstrates disappearance of the ring blush from two to six months after the first scan. The CT appearance of the ring blush is not specific for hematoma, but its peripheral location and lack of mass effect may be considered suggestive of hematoma with appropriate clinical findings. The characteristic serial changes permit correct diagnosis without surgical intervention in most cases.
