  • Descrição: The retrospective analysis of hematological data on 500 consecutive Saudi patients (342; 158F) (mean age 63 + 17 yrs) with stroke whose composition was: large infarctions 260 (52%); lacunar infarctions 121 (24.2%), intracerebral hemorrhage 107 (21.2%) and subarachnoid hemorrhage 12 (2.4%), showed that RBC (5.2 + 1.9 × 10/L), Hb (143 + 21 g/l) and Hct (0.43 + 0.07 1/1) values were significantly higher (P 60 included 28 patients (20M;8F) who had Hb > 140 g/l suggesting that Hb > 150 g/L or Hct > 0.44 in men and > 140 g/l or Hct> 0.42 in women is probably a risk factor for having cerebral infarctions and increased mortality. Since this study is neither a cohort nor prospective and was not performed in the acute phase, it was difficult to ascertain if relative polycythemia was a primary event for stroke or was secondary to dehydration in which Saudi hot weather may be a contributory factor.
