Papile's classification for intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH):

  1. Grade I: restricted to germinal matrix subependymal area

  2. Grade II: hemorrhage is extending inside the normally-sized ventricle (will usually fill less than 50% of the ventricle)

  3. Grade III: hemorrhage with extension into a dilated ventricle (typically fills more than 50% of the ventricle)

  4. Grade IV: hemorrhage that extends in the parenchyma
