Hemorrhagic stroke

A hemorrhagic stroke can be induced by hypertension, the rupture of an aneurysm or vascular malformation, or as a side effect of anticoagulant medicines. An intracerebral haemorrhage happens when bleeding straight into the brain tissue, typically resulting in a clot. A subarachnoid haemorrhage develops when the cerebrospinal fluid compartments around the brain are filled with blood. Both illnesses are quite severe.


A hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a blood artery in the brain or the area around the brain suddenly ruptures, resulting in bleeding into the brain. This kind of stroke has a wide range of causes and risk factors, including:

  • Head injuries
  • Aneurysms in the brain
  • Hypertension
  • Blood vessel anomalies like arteriovenous malformation (AVM) and amyloid angiopathy
  • Sickle cell anaemia or other bleeding disorder
  • Liver issues


In the event of a stroke, one or more of the following symptoms may appear:

  • Sudden and excruciating headache
  • Involuntary loss of awareness
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • One-sided weakness or numbness.
  • Feeling dizzy or unsteady
  • Speech impediments
  • Confusion


  • CT
  • MRI
  • EEG


A hemorrhagic stroke is considered a medical emergency. Care should be given right away. Stopping the bleeding and lowering the pressure in your brain are the two main objectives of treatment for hemorrhagic stroke. If there is only a little bleeding, medication could be utilized. Surgery can be required in severe situations.
