We carried out an observational and descriptive study of 75 patients who died from spontaneous intracrainial hemorrhages from January 1986 to December 1997, 40 % of whom (53.34 %) were males and 35 (46.66 %) females with and average age of 64.35 years. Blood hypertension was the most prevailing risk factors in 33 patients (44 %) followed by congestive heart failure in 17 (27.67 %) whereas the most common cause was represented by hemorrhage in hypertension with 40 patients (53.34 %). The most significant intracranial anatomopathological findings were intraventricular hemorrhage in 26 patients (34.67 %), cerebral edema in 24 (32 %) subarachnoid hemorrhage in 23 cases (30.67 %)
