  1. Stroke in Saudi Arabian young adults : a study of 120 cases.

    Article - En anglais

    One hundred and twenty cases of stroke occurring in Saudi Arabian subjects aged 15 to 45 years are reviewed.

    These constituted 12.7% of a group of 946 stroke patients.

    Males outnumbered females (76/44).

    The frequency of intracranial hemorrhage, including subarachnoid hemorrhage, was slightly lower than cerebral infarction (41.5 vs 58.5%). The causes of large cerebral infarction were as follows: atherosclerosis 17 (28%), cardiac embolism 12 (19.5%), uncommon and uncertain causes 21 (34.5%). Some unusual causes were encountered such as dissecting arterial aneurysm due to popular healing manoeuvres or to traditional dance, retrograde embolism from a thoracic outlet syndrome or embolism from a fibroelastoma of the mitral valve chorda.
