Ischemic stroke (IS) caused by middle cerebral artery (MCA) disease is the most common type of IS caused by intracranial artery disease in the Chinese population. Hypertension and diabetes mellitus are the common risk factors of cerebral small vessel disease and large artery atherosclerosis (LAA). However, little is known about whether hypertension and diabetes mellitus had different correlations with the small artery occlusion (SAO) and LAA etiology of MCA disease. Therefore, our aim was to identify the predictors of the etiology of MCA disease.
