ABSTRACTDejerine and Roussy provided the first detailed description of thalamic syndrome. Badouin made important contributions toward defining the characteristics of thalamic hemorrhage. Thalamic hemorrhages are a group of supratentorial cerebral hemorrhages of subcortical topography with specific and variable clinical characteristics, related to arteries and nucleus involved. The prevalence of thalamic hemorrhage in different series of primary intracerebral hemorrhage varies from 6 to 15%. The aim of this paper was to review the basic and clinical aspects of thalamic hemorrhage.
