Abstract

Background and Purpose: Little information is available regarding black-white differences in stroke incidence in young adults. Methods: Cerebral infarction and intracerebral hemorrhage rates among adults 15 to44 years of age were studied in Baltimore City and Baltimore County for 1988. Diagnoses were based on neurologist review of data obtained from medical records at 41 hospitals by neurological nurses. Results: The cerebral infarction rates per 100 000 were 22.8 for black males, 10.3 for white males, 20.7 for black females, and 10.8 for white females. The intracerebral hemorrhage rates per 100 000 were 14.2 for black males, 4.6 for white males, 4.8 for black females, and 1.5 for white females. Conclusions: Blacks had significantly (P<.05) higher rates thanwhites for both cerebral infarction and intracerebral hemorrhage. Cerebral infarction rates are high in Baltimore compared with Florence, Italy, or Stockholm, Sweden.
