Aim In this study, the authors presented the 10-year survey on risk factors among young patients with ischemic stroke according to their family history. Patients and methods The population includes 92 young patients with ischemic stroke who had been admitted at Neurology Department of Pyongyang Medical College Hospital, Kim Il Sung University, between January 2007 and August 2016. Among them, young patients with familial history of ischemic stroke were 34 (11 females and 23 males), with a mean age of 38.9±3.54 years, and nonfamilial ones were 58 (13 females and 45 males), with mean age of 37.5±4.21 years (18–44 years old). Results Young patients with familial history of ischemic stroke with 5–10 risk factors were more than nonfamilial group, but young patients with nonfamilial ischemic stroke with 10–15 risk factors were more than familial group. Moreover, the effect of each risk factor is different in the two groups. Conclusion Incidence of young ischemic stroke is different between familial and nonfamilial groups, and nonfamilial patients have more risk factors than familial ones.
