Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is usually secondary to systemic arterial hypertension, sudden in onset, rapidly progressive, fulminating disease, with profound neurological deficit and high mortality. In majority of the survivors of ICHclots are usually absorbed with minimal scar formation; however, in uncommon circumstances the clot can liquefy and expand causing delayed deterioration that require urgent hematoma evacuation to hasten the recovery. We discuss a case of a 40-year-old male, where the patient had delayed deterioration in his neurological status and a follow-up computed tomography (CT) scan showed sub-acute expansile intracerebral hematoma.
