We studied the relations of age, sex, hypertension, alcohol consumption, liver dysfunction, and thrombocyte count to the volume of the hematoma in 141 patients with spontaneous putaminal hemorrhage. Hematomas were significantly larger in men, regular alcohol consumers, those with liver dysfunction, and those with low platelet counts. Our findings reflect the fact that almost all of the alcohol consumers were men, most of them had liver disorders, and the volume of hematoma in such patients was relatively large.
