Stroke & Vascular Disorders
Hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhage
In hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhage, focal neurologic symptoms evolve over minutes to hours, with small hematomas that may mimic lacunar strokes, and large hematomas associated with increased intracranial pressure, headache, vomiting, and decreased alertness. Rapid blood pressure control does not improve the outcome, and if excessive, may lead to ischemic stroke.
