A pubmed researh have been done and compared with the outcomes obtained in this study. Results: Forty one clinical charts from patients with mass lesions which required stereotactic biopsies have been analized. The histopatological diagnostic was made in 90% of the cases. 66% had neoplasic lesions. The morbility was 4%, represented by intracerebral hematomas, that required emergency surgical treatment. The mortality was 2%. Conclusion : In our experience the stereotactic biopsies CT guided whith the Zamorano Dujovny stereotactic system is a practical and relatively easy method, with low morbility and mortality, and whith a high accuracy in the diagnosis.
