The article offers information on the differential effects of hypertension in the aetiology of major intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) subtypes. The meta-analysis of observational studies with defined localization of the ICH have shown that overall history of hypertension was about twice as common in deep ICH as in lobar ICH. However, there was a considerable heterogeneity across studies, and sensitivity analyses restricted higher quality studies markedly attenuated its differential effect.
