A population-based case--control study found that lobar and nonlobar hemorrhages have different risk factors (23). Hypertension was a significant risk factor for nonlobar ICH, accounting for 54% of the population-attributable risk. Lobar brain hemorrhage was instead associated with the presence of the apolipoprotein E £2 or £4 allele (29% population-attributable risk for the presence of either allele). Prior history of ischemic stroke, anticoagulant use, first-degree relative with ICH, and frequent alcohol use were associated with either type of hemorrhage.

Lloyd-Jones and Christopher J. O'Donnell INTRODUCTION Hypertension is a highly prevalent, major risk factor for stroke in both men and women in the developed world. Recent data from population-based studies emphasize the substantial risks conferred by elevated levels of systolic blood pressure (SBP) over and above diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and the risks of borderline elevations in SBP. Decades of randomized treatment trials have demonstrated the clear net benefit on stroke and cardiovascular disease (CVD) conferred by antihypertensive therapy.
