Intracerebral Hemorrhage

Home  >>  Intracerebral Hemorrhage


An intracerebral hemorrhage is bleeding in the brain caused by the rupture of a blood vessel within the head. Blood may accumulate in the brain tissues itself, or in the space between the brain and the membranes covering it. An intracerebral hemorrhage can be caused by a traumatic brain injury or abnormalities of the blood vessels or with high blood pressure.
