Intracranial disease is the most common vascular lesion worldwide. METHODS - We prospectively studied 200 consecutive ethnic South Asian patients with acute ischemic stroke in Singapore. RESULTS - Intracranial large-artery disease was prevalent among 54% of all stroke subtypes and was independently associated with hypertension and higher serum erythrocyte sedimentation rate.
