Is brain hemorrhaging hereditary?

1 doctor weighed in

In brief: Typically NO

Most brain hemorrhages are due to uncontrolled hypertension.
Other common causes include cocaine/amphetamines, tumors that bleed, arteriovenous malformations, aneurysm rupture, anti-coagulant medications, trauma, embolic strokes that bleed and some brain infections.. The complete list is long. Some hereditary conditions that affect the integrity of blood vessel walls, increase bleeding risk.
