Intracerebral hemorrhage is a term for bleeding into the brain.

What is going on in the body?

When blood leaks into the brain for any reason, it can have significant consequences. The brain controls many functions in the body. An intracerebral hemorrhage can damage the cells that control these functions, resulting in temporary or permanent disability or death.

The possible causes of intracerebral hemorrhage include:

  • high blood pressure
  • weakened or abnormal blood vessels, such as a cerebral aneurysm
  • drug abuse, such as cocaine abuse
  • head injury
  • brain tumors
  • abnormal bleeding tendencies
  • treatment with medications that thin the blood, such as anticoagulants or thrombolytics
