Intracerebral hematoma occurs when there is bleeding inside your brain. This is most often caused from a closed-head injury. However, it can also occur from an open or penetrating injury or as a result of a skull fracture.
In the absence of trauma or surgery, spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage can occur. Common causes include high blood pressure, vascular malformations, amyloid angiopathy, tumors and coagulopathies (tendencies to bleed, such as being on blood thinners).
At the Stroke Center, we provide the most advanced diagnosis and treatments for intracerebral hematomas.
