In brief: Bleeding/swelling
Apoplexy in the brain involves sudden bleeding into the cerebral or pituitary tissue.
This can cause associated swelling which is called cerebral edema. The combination of bleeding and swelling can cause neurological deficits such as weakness, speech problems, coma or death.
