We report 33 cases of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) in patients aged from to 9/44 years (male: 20, female: 13, mean age: 32.5 years). ICH was due to vascular malformations in 39 p. 100 of cases, to arterial hypertension in 30% and to various causes in 18% no cause could be found in 13% of the cases. ICH was lobar in 64%, deep in 33% and infratentorial in 3% of the cases. The diagnosis was assessed by arteriography in 9 patients. The vascular malformations were arterial angiomas, saccular aneurysms and cavernous angiomas. Death rate was 24%. There was a fast ICH handicap in 40% of cases. Only 36% of the patients were not disabled.
