Brain haemorrhage, coloured computed tomography (CT) scan. The front of the brain is at top. A large mass of blood (haematoma, white) is seen in the lateral ventricles within the cerebrum. The ventricles (red, centre) are spaces filled with cerebrospinal fluid, the medium that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. Intracerebral haemorrhages (bleeding) are most often caused by hypertension (high blood pressure), but can also result from injury, drug abuse or an abnormality of the blood vessels.
