Q: In Intra-Cranial Hemorrhage (ICH) - which area is more prone to cause seizure?

A) lobar  hemorrhage
B) deep hemorrhage

Answer: A

Contrary to popular belief, seizures are more common in lobar hemorrhage as compared to deep hemorrhage. Monitoring is essential as non-convulsive seizure is not uncommon.
