Primary brain hemorrhage and infarction only very rarely occur simultaneously. We report a patient with the simultaneous onset of hemorrhagic and ischemic strokes who had uncontrolled hypertension and atrial fibrillation. Neuroradiologic investigations revealed a large right thalamic hematoma with ventricular extension and an infarct in the territory of the left internal carotid artery. The patient died at the end of the second day because of herniation in spite of anti-edema and antihypertensive medication.
