What is lobar intracerebral hemorrhage?

Lobar hemorrhage is a type of intracerebral hemorrhage that occurs when blood leaks into one of the four lobes of the brain. This may be caused by a deposit of protein known as amyloid, resulting in a rupture of the blood vessel. In other situations, bleeding may start in an entanglement of blood vessels known as an arteriovenous malformation, which may rupture and cause a stroke. These are not necessarily caused by high blood pressure, as are other kinds of hemorrhagic stroke.
