Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) accounts for 10–15% of all strokes and results in significant morbidity and mortality [1]. Short-term mortality in patients with ICH is about 30% [2-4]. In these patients, advanced age, low Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), high blood pressure, and hyperglycemia at admission are established clinical risk factors for early death [5,6]. Volume of hematoma at presentation, hematoma expansion, deep/infratentorial location and ventricular extension are the main radiologic predictors of death and poor functional outcome in the early days and at 3 months after ICH [6-11].
