The authors present a case of the death of a young female drug addict due to intracerebral hemorrhage. Liquid chromatography with mass spectrometry was instrumental in the identification and quantitative determination of amphetamine within an intracerebral hematoma that had persisted for 13 days. In view of the fact that the deceased was young, did not suffer from any detectable diseases, and the narcotic substance was only detected within the hematomas, the case should be classified among rare complications of amphetamine abuse.
