La lesión cerebral traumática es un importante problema de salud pública, y es la principal causa de mortalidad, morbilidad y discapacidad en niños y adultos jóvenes, especialmente los hombres jóvenes (de 15 a 35 años). Traumática bilateral de ganglios basales TBGH (hemorragia) es una entidad rara, con menos de ocho casos reportados en la literatura. El mecanismo de esta lesión no es bien entendido, y diversas teorías basadas en la autopsia indings han sido propuestas para explicar este tipo de lesión. Resultados de TBGH generalmente es favorable, a menos que estén asociados con otras lesiones neuroparenchymal concomitante. Un caso de hematoma ganglios basales bilaterales traumáticas se ha debatido aquí con una revisión de la literatura disponible sobre el tema.
