Small Bleed In Brain
AVM: A 2mm avm is an extremely small size avm and impressed they were able to find it on radiologic studies. An avm always has a risk of bleeding but if only 2mm in size this would be a low flow avm and the risks on the lower size. I would recommend followup in the future to make sure there is no growth in the avm as that would change the treatment. ...Read more

Is a small hyperintensity of 3mm in the cerebellum significant or can this occur in healthy individuals on a brain mri?
No and yes: We are mostly water. MRI picks up differences in the local chemistry of water. Anything "abnormal" looks bright (hyperintense). MRI's sensitivity is higher than its specificity, meaning that it's good at picking up certain things but not as good at distinguishing between "normal" and truly "abnormal." One little bright spot in an otherwise normal brain is almost never clinically significant. ...Read more

Very concerning: When a blood vessel bursts inside the brain, it bleeds into the surrounding space (or tissue). That causes increased pressure to surrounding structures which can cause significant damage. Smaller bleeds may cause less damage - unless they happen in more vital areas. Large bleeds sometimes need surgery. ...Read more

Depends on injury: Subdural hematomas can be found over any part of the brain. If the patient had injuries over the frontal region, the force of the injury is more likely to lead to tearing of the subdural veins in this region, thus leading to the subdural hematoma. You may see more subdurals in the frontal region because this is an area that is likely to suffer an injury (ie. Fall or assault). ...Read more
Yes: Newborns can have internal bleeding in the brain by the same mechanisms as adults, but most commonly, especially if premature, from an interventricular hemorrhage (ivh).
