This book is a practical and comprehensive review of clinical intracerebral hemorrhage. First, the general feature section covers historical aspects, epidemiology, symptoms and signs, pathology, and neuroimaging of intracerebral hemorrhage. The historical perspective gives an insightful and interesting overview of developments from Hippocrates to C. Miller Fisher. Selected historical examples are described and illustrated in detail, but the section is not too long. The pathology section is illustrated clearly with gross specimens, histologic sections, and a diagram. The distinction between intracerebral hemorrhage and hemorrhagic transformation of an infarction is clearly described, illustrated, and depicted in a Table. The section on neuroimaging contains excellent examples of both the computed tomographic and the magnetic resonance imaging appearances of intracerebral hemorrhage from a few hours to several months from onset. The evolution of the appearance of intracerebral hemorrhage on both T1- and T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging over time is illustrated
