The one that kills: Obvious answer....well, it is the only answer based upon your question. There is no such thing as a "worst" type of brain hemorrhage. Each and every type can have A REALLY BAD CONSEQUENCE occurring upon its owner depending on circumstances and severity of the bleed. I think the worst is probably the EPIDURAL. That one's a doozy.
