We studied 13 patients with cerebellar haemorrhage diagnosed by computed tomography (CT). Hypertension was accepted to be the etiological factor in 7 patients (53.5%). The most common presentation findings were vertigo, nausea, vomiting and headache. In 6 patients haemorrhage was located to left cerebellar hemisphere in 5 to right cerebellar hemisphere and in 2 to vermis. 3 patients were lost while a patient with a large vermian hematoma improved without any sequel. It is decided that the prognosis mostly depends on the level of consciousness from the beginning rather then the localization and the diameter of the hematoma.
