Introduction: A stroke is an acute neurologic condition resulting from a disruption in cerebral perfusion, either due to ischemia (ischemic strokes) or hemorrhage (hemorrhagic strokes). Hemorrhagic strokes are further classified as intracerebral or subarachnoid.
Clinically, strokes are characterized by the acute onset of focal neurologic deficits, including hemiparesis, paresthesias,

and hemianopsia.
Systemic hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases are common risk factors for both ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes.
For both ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes, age is the most important nonmodifiable risk factor and arterial hypertension is the most important modifiable risk factor.
