Abstract

Objective: To report cluster breathing pattern associated with a nonbrainstem lesion. Design: Case report. Setting: Neurointensive care unit, St Mary's Hospital, Rochester, Minn. Patient: A patient with subarachnoid hemorrhage developed severe, diffuse, distal bilateral middle cerebral artery vasospasm with resultant cortical laminar necrosis and transient cluster breathing. Intervention: Magnetic resonance imaging revealed bihemispheric lesions but no brainstem lesion. Conclusion: Cluster breathing may occur with non-brainstem lesions.
