Spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage is one of the most devastating forms of cerebrovascular disease, and is most frequently caused by hypertension in the distribution of the perforating arteries. Generally, hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhage is usually a single lesion, and recurrent intracerebral hemorrhage due to hypertension is not a rare condition. But multiple simultaneous intracerebral hemorrhage caused by hypertension is very rare. The authors report 4 cases of multiple hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhage. This represents 0.77% of total 514 hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhages treated between January, 1994 and December, 1997 in our institution. All patients had chronic history of hypertension, and the locations of the hematomas were as follows: both basal ganglia in two cases, right basal ganglia and left thalamus in one case, cerebellum and left parietal lobe in one case. Two cases were treated by surgical evacuation of hematoma and remaining two were treated by conservative management. The results of treatment were poor in all patients.
