What is it?
A cerebral haemorrhage (or intracerebral haemorrhage, ICH), is a subtype of intracranial haemorrhage that occurs within the brain tissue itself. Intracerebral haemorrhage can be caused by brain trauma, or it can occur spontaneously in hemorrhagic stroke. Non-traumatic intracerebral haemorrhage is a spontaneous bleeding into the brain tissue.
A cerebral haemorrhage is an intra-axial haemorrhage; that is, it occurs within the brain tissue rather than outside of it. The other category of intracranial hemorrhage is extra-axial haemorrhage, such as epidural, subdural, and subarachnoid hematomas, which all occur within the skull but outside of the brain tissue. There are two main kinds of intra-axial haemorrhages: intraparenchymal haemorrhage and intraventricular haemorrhages. As with other types of haemorrhages within the skull, intraparenchymal bleeds are a serious medical emergency because they can increase intracranial pressure, which if left untreated can lead to coma and death. The mortality rate for intraparenchymal bleeds is over 40%.
