Intraparenchymal hemorrhage (IPH) comprises <20% of all strokes but has the highest rate of mortality. Additionally, IPH can be either primary or secondary and can have a number of different causes. Risk factors have been identified, and assessment scores can aid in diagnosis. Timely recognition and management of IPH, including blood pressure control and reversal of associated coagulopathy, among others, are imperative to facilitate recovery and produce the most favorable outcomes.
