To investigate relationship between intracranial aneurysm and systemic hypertension, 190 consecutive cases of intracranial aneurysm which were treated surgically were analized in regard to the incidence of ypertension and to the effect of hypertension on their outcome. The incidence of hypertension in cases with aneurysm was higher than in general population. Multiple aneurysm patients had significantly higher incidence of hypertension than single aneurysm patients did. The amount of subarachnoid clot on postictal CT scan and neurological status on admission were not statistically different between hypertensive and normotensive group. Frequency of rebleeding was significantly higher in hypertensive group than in normotensive group. The incidence of cerebral vasospasm or hydrocephalus was statistically not significant between hypertensive group and normotensive group. The clinical outcome was similar between two groups.
