THE FAMILIAL OCCURRENCE of cerebral aneurysms in a defined clinical group of 1150 patients from a defined catchment area was studied.
Two or more proven aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) patients within the same family were included.
Of these 1150 patients, 113 (10%) had a proven familial occurrence of aneurysmal SAH.
These 113 patients form 91 SAH families with a total of 203 aneurysm patients.
Fifty-four percent of the patients were female, and the mean age in female patients was 49 years and in male patients was 44 years.
In 23% of the families, three or more members were identified as having cerebral aneurysms.
Middle cerebral artery aneurysms were the most common type (47%).
