What is acute infract with hemorrhagic transformation (in left temporo-occipito-parietal lobe) with sensory aphasia? what is the cause?

This describes a stroke, commencing with a blood vessel obstruction followed by secondary bleeding. Since this involves the dominant hemisphere, a speech problem emerged due to damaged connections. Need to uncover the cause, especially if in a young person, and appropriate medicines and speech therapy plus occupational therapy will be needed.
