Abstract

Background and Aims: Results from prior studies of risk factors for intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) are inconsistent. Few studies have investigated risk factors measured before the event and separately for different locations of ICH. We investigated risk factors for incident ICH in the population-based Malmö Diet and Cancer cohort.
