Cerebral haemorrhage in a urban Chinese population

Funct Neurol. Jul-Sep 1986;1(3):213-21.


A prospective study of Chinese patients aged 20-70 years reveals that at least 30.5% of all strokes are due to cerebral haemorrhage. Compared to previous studies in Caucasians, there is both a proportional and absolute increase in cerebral haemorrhage amongst all strokes, alert strokes, or those who presented with just a lacunar syndrome. The cause for this increase is unclear but genetic, dietary, and other environmental factors may be involved.
