          Abstract

          We reported computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of brain damage of a 61-year-old man who attempted suicide by hanging. Unenhanced CT demonstrated multiple hyperdense areas indicating subcortical and subarachnoid hemorrhages and brain swelling. MRI demonstrated not only hemorrhagic findings, but also ischemic findings in the middle brain and cerebral cortex. Multifocal cerebral hemorrhages might be caused by venous hypertension due to compression of the jugular veins.
