The authors ­report the ­late mac­ro- and micro­scop­ic ­aspects of the brain­stem ­lesions ­found in two ­patients who sur­vived an ­acute ­uncal her­ni­a­tion, respec­tive­ly, 176 and 62 ­days. They ­also ­describe the evo­lu­tion of the clin­i­cal pic­ture char­ac­ter­ized by the com­plete dis­ap­pear­ance of initial­ly ­present neu­ro­log­i­cal ­signs but by a per­sis­tent coma­tose ­state.
