Brief Answer:
IC bleed is most likley due to thrombolytic agent.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted the case details, and in my opinion, the IC bleed is most likely related to the administration of thrombolytic agent. This complication is seen in about 5-6% of patients after thrombolysis, even if all the inclusion and exclusion criteria for thrombolysis are strictly followed.

I sincerely hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
