Abstract Ginkgo biloba is a herbal medication that is often used worldwide. Although side effects are uncommon, G. biloba has been associated with serious bleeding complications, especially intracranial hemorrhage. We report the case of a young woman who made chronic use of G. biloba and suffered from cerebral bleeding without any structural abnormalities. Several studies have pointed to the association between G. biloba and intracranial hemorrhage.
