Brain haemorrhage in stroke. Section through a brain after a haemorrhagic stroke, showing an accumulation of blood (dark, centre left). A stroke, or cerebrovascular accident (CVA), is the rapid loss of brain function due to a disturbance in the blood supply to the brain. Here this was caused by the middle cerebral artery (MCA) bursting and leaking blood (haemorrhaging).
