Abstract

Hemorrhagic Brain Metastases (BM) from lung cancer manifest as multiple lesions with large edema and irregular shape. The presence of hemorrhagic and non-hemorrhagic lesions in patients with multiple metastases is rare. Our case reports that a 61-year-old woman was admitted to the emergency department with a behavioral disorder, emotional lability, and fatigue of months' duration, accompanied by sudden-onset vomiting, associated with hemicranial headache. The patient was diagnosed with a suspected hemorrhagic brain metastasis due to lung carcinoma. She was diagnosed with a suspected hemorrhagic brain metastasis due to lung carcinoma, and she was undergoing sequential chemotherapy and radiotherapy as an alternative regimen. The present case emphasizes the need to consider hemorrhagic metastasis as a differential diagnosis in patients presenting with solitary intracerebral hemorrhage whose location is uncommon.
