The management and outcome were investigated in patients with chronic renal failure receiving maintenance blood purification who suffered intracranial hemorrhage. Radiocontrast-induced nephropathy (RCIN) could contribute a serious complication in patients with preexisting renal insufficiency. We experienced a rare case of ICH with preexisting renal cell carcinoma who undergone blood purification. 71-year-old woman suspected renal cell carcinoma in left kidney, presented to our emergency room with a chief complaint of mental change and motor weakness. We underwent stereotactic hematoma removal. After postoperative clinical improvements for 3 days, oliguric acute renal failure was observed. 2 days after hemodialysis, recurrent intracranial bleeding with aggravated edema was revealed and the patient became comatous state. We report a case of aggravated renal function with underlying renal disease after radiocontrast injection.
