Bleeding is one of the side effects of oral anticoagulants. They need to be taken into account with a frequency of less than 1% per treatment year. They can evolve from an asymptomatic onset to a potentially life-threatening complication. In two patients, an intracerebral hemorrhage was incidentally detected before it could manifest clinically. This suggests that the actual number of anticoagulant-related complications may be higher than reported.
