Familial clustering of intracerebral hemorrhage: a prospective study in North Carolina.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Few studies have assessed the frequency of familial clustering in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Of 144 patients with ICH prospectively assessed, 14 (9.8%) had a positive family history of ICH (FH+). Four pedigrees had more than two affected family members. Comparisons between FH+ and FH- probands demonstrated no significant differences in race, age, sex, ICH type or location. An underlying genetic etiology may account for familial clustering in some ICH patients.
