• The simultaneous occurrence of two intracerebral hematomas in different arterial territories of the brain is rare. We report the clinical, radiologic, and post-mortem findings in two such cases. The absence of readily identifiable vascular disease in such patients suggests that a subtle degenerative process may be active in the pathogenesis of this condition.
