A sudden, nonconvulsive loss of neurologic function due to an ischemic or hemorrhagic intracranial vascular event. In general, cerebrovascular accidents are classified by anatomic location in the brain, vascular distribution, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. nonhemorrhagic nature.

At the present day, the term apoplexy is employed by many writers to signify interstitial hemorrhage, (F.) Hemorrhagie interstitielle, or every effusion of blood, which occurs suddenly into the substance of an organ or tissue. Hence, we speak of cerebral apoplexy, pulmonary apoplexy, &c. &c. Formerly it was always- and still is by many- used in a restricted sense, to signify, in other words, the train of phenomena, which characterize cerebral apoplexy. In Nervous Apoplexy, Apoplexia nervosa seu spasmodica, A. simplex, Simple apoplexy, no lesion whatever may be perceptible on dissection; although the patient may have died under all the phenomena that are characteristic of apoplexy.
