my dad fall and have a blood in the brain, he doesn't need a surgery, he have amnesia and hallucination. how can i help him?

Watch him.

Blood
Make sure the Neurologist follows the patient with imaging studies ( CT or MRI). He/She may order medicines for hallucinations . Amnesia may improve by itself or stayed the same. There are drugs for hallucinations. Just be supportive taking pt to appointments and reminding him what he has to do. Read about falling precautions . He might need institutionalization if difficult to handle.

Help docs! I'm trying to find out what causes blood on the brain of a child could it possibly be sinusitis?

Unlikely

Children
A complicated sinus infection in a child can result in lots of problems but it would be rare to have bleeding in the brain from that alone.

Concussion

A "minor" concussion is usually recovered from quickly - with the presence of blood that can delay things a bit but normally the patient is back to normal within 2-3 months if not sooner.

If you had a concussion and a little blood on the brain that they thought would desolve or go away on its own but showed up on a Mri 3weeks lat then?

MR is very sensitive

Open-uri20130921-25708-1jwewzg
MRI is very sensitive in detecting blood products. It is even capable of staging the age of the bleed as the imaging characteristics of blood on MRI are variable and change with the age of the blood. So as long as your hematoma is evolving in expected fashion (based on MRI) and have not changed in size it is ok. Hemosiderin (blood break down product) can be detected on MRI Years after the bleed.

Is there blood in the brain?

Yes

Blood
There is blood in all the tissues of the body contained in a closed circulatory system. This means that all the blood in the body is contained within vessels, such as arteries, veins, and capillaries. The circulatory system in the brain is unique, in that the capillaries possess specific tight junctions which form a blood-brain barrier. This restricts certain molecules from entering the brain.

How can a (brain) blood clot be caused?

Cerebral thrombosis.

Open-uri20120720-11728-fypb29
Blood clots in the brain obstruct vessels and cause stroke. Blood clots can develop at a local regional vessel in the head or they can come from a distant vessel, commonly the carotid, or from the heart , especially when the heart beats irregularly. The most common mechanism for a clot developing is rupture of a atherotic plaque on the blood vessel which stimulates the blood to clot.
