Impact of race/ethnicity on functional outcomes following intracerebral hemorrhage


  • Young black and Hispanic people have better short-term functional outcomes than those of white race following spontaneous supratentorial intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH).

Why this matters

  • Although the risk factors and outcomes for spontaneous ICH in older people have been well studied, less is known about predictors of poor outcome in young people. ­

  • Distinct biological and social factors may underpin differences in functional recovery from ICH.
