A report of patient with nonembolic ischemic cerebral infarction, developing a massive hemorrhagic transformation of the infarct with neurological deterioration on the 15th day after the onset of the ischemic stroke is presented. The hemorrhagic transformation occurred in the absence of hypertension, cardiac source for embolism, coagulation defects, thrombolysis or anticoagulation therapy. It is important to recognize that hemorrhagic transformation can also occur in the natural evolution of an ischemic infarction or with simple therapy like low dose aspirin.
