Emergency?: Could well be an asymptomatic finding in pts on anti-coagulants, but could initially cause headaches, perhaps unilateral weakness, or leg weakness, and could expand with a catastrophic brain herniation(life threatening). In elderly, may see cognitive loss and confusion. Might contribute to seizures. Hospitalization with cafeful monitoring advised in most cases.
