cerebral hemorrhage


A cerebral or brain hemorrhage, also called a hemorrhagic stroke, occurs when a blood vessel or an aneurysm bursts in the brain, causing bleeding inside the brain. A brain hemorrhagic can also be caused by a head injury. It is different from a subarachnoid hemorrhage, which occurs when a blood vessel on the brain’s surface ruptures and bleeds into the space between the brain and the skull.
