Intracerebral haemorrhage. Silhouette of a head with a computer-enhanced section through the human brain showing intracerebral haemorrhage. At left is the area of haemorrhage or bleeding (red) in the folded cerebrum of the brain. Intracerebral haemorrhage is a principal cause of stroke. This large haemorrhage has caused brain tissue to be compressed and pushed out of shape. Rupture of an artery usually results from hypertension (high blood pressure) or atherosclerosis (fatty deposits inside arteries). Symptoms include headache, speech loss, facial paralysis, to coma. A large haemorrhage is usually fatal. Rehabilitation for the survivor is as for any type of stroke.
