Intracerebral hemorrhage

type of intracranial hemorrhage that occurs within the brain tissue itself

Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), also known as cerebral bleed, is a type of intracranial bleed that happens within the brain tissue or ventricles.[1]

Symptoms can include headache, one-sided weakness, vomiting, seizures, decreased level of consciousness, and neck stiffness. Often symptoms get worse over time. Fever is also common. In many cases bleeding is present in both the brain tissue and the ventricles.

Causes include brain trauma, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and brain tumors.
