Abstract

Cholesterol levels are inconsistently associated with the risk of hemorrhagic stroke. Total 24 patients were
included in the study with severe headache at hospital word of AL-Hussein teaching hospital in AL-Muthana
from 1st July 2018 to 15th December 2018. Blood Samples were taken by using sterile syringe and tube
sent to biochemical laboratory. Prospective studies were included, totaling 24 patient, the summary relative
risk of ICH was increased level of total cholesterol (5.18), (0.3) for high-density lipoprotein cholesterol,
(1.40) for low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and (1.4) for triglyceride. Total cholesterol level is inversely
associated with risk of ICH. Higher level of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol seems to be associated with
lower risk of ICH. Cholesterol level seems to be positively associated with risk of intracerebral hemorrhage.
