In summary it appears that a spontaneous persistent decrease of a pre-existent hypertension occurs rather commonly in patients who experience a cerebral vascular accident. The phenomenon occurs more commonly in patients with hypertension of relatively short standing, in women and in instances where the left hemisphere is involved. These latter two points indicate that constitutional factors, which as yet are not well understood, may play a role in this phenomenon.
