The prognosis of twenty consecutive patients with acute spontaneous putaminal haemorrhage was studied using clinical and CT scan findings. Patients with haemorrhage of less than 4.5 cms were mostly conscious and had independent activity of daily living (ADL) at the end of 3 months; between 4.6 cms and 6 cms., they were mostly drowsy and had partly independent ADL; above 6 cms., they were in stupor or in coma with a high incidence of mortality. Early surgical intervention is advised in the last group.
