Background and aims: Prediction of intracerebral hematoma expansion (IHE) is of critical importance during intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) management. Given its suggested positive connection with cerebral microvascular disease status, intracranial internal carotid artery wall calcifications (ICAC) on admission computed tomography (CT) studies may contribute to prediction of IHE.
