Spontaneous Parenchymal Haemorrhage

Deep haemorrhages

In the first 2 cases (Figures 1 and 2), a small haematoma is present over the right and left basal ganglia respectively. Whilst in the third case (Figure 3), there is a haematoma at the brainstem. These are classified as deep haemorrhages and most often are due to hypertension.
