Major types of hemorrhagic strokes

What are the major types of hemorrhagic strokes? 

Hemorrhagic strokes include subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH, usually due to aneurysm rupture) and parenchymal intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH).

Overall, approximately 6% of strokes are due to deep ICH, 3% are due to lobar ICH, and 3% are due to SAH. Although ischemic strokes are more frequent, hemorrhagic strokes have a higher morbidity and mortality.

Because subdural and epidural hematomas are extra-axial, these bleeds are not considered strokes
