Underwater environment predisposes a diver to high blood pressure. Although neurologic manifestation after a diving episode are considered to be decompressive illness unless otherwise proved, all medical emergencies are to be considered. Incidence of ICH amongst divers while working underwater is rare and yet to be reviewed in diving literature. We present a 48 year old, exdinerwith C/o Rt. hemiparesis post-dine. NCCT and MRI demonstrated acute intracranial haemorrhage. He was managed conservatively.
