After the publication, in 1961, of the book Pathology and Pathogeny of Intracerebral Hemorrhage, by Miller Fisher (6), the treatment of the spontaneous intracerebral hematomas brought about considerable controversy:

“Although the numbers are small, further evidence is provided that patients survive cerebral hemorrhage. One of the important aspects of these findings is that it emphasizes the need for some type of control study in estimating the efficacy of any mode of therapy of hemorrhages. Furthermore, it must be appreciated that the majority of patients who survive cerebral hemorrhage make a very satisfactory recovery from their neurological deficit“.
