What is Intracerebral Hemorrhage (ICH)?

Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a type of stroke characterized by bleeding within the brain tissue itself. It occurs when a blood vessel ruptures, causing blood to accumulate and create a hematoma within the brain. ICH can result from conditions such as hypertension, vascular malformations, or head trauma. Symptoms vary depending on the location and size of the hemorrhage and may include sudden severe headache, neurological deficits, loss of consciousness, and vomiting.
