Particularly, brain hemorrhages produce intracranial hypertension, which generates deficit in the regulation mechanisms of the intra cerebral blood flow. This deficit causes cerebral edema and ischemia in addition to the clinical chart that develops a mass phenomenon by pressure, which displaces the brain tissue. Objective: to demonstrate that an adequate physical intervention and parents' responsibility about their son neurological improvement increases the benefits of the treatment. Clinical case: a case of a nine-month-old male patient, with mixed hemiplegia on the right side, caused by bleeding in the basal ganglia. After seven months of physiotherapy, the patient starts independent walking. Conclusion: it is pertinent to establish the characteristics of this clinical outcome, shows the adequate rehabilitation as the best and main therapeutic option.
