Zieve's syndrome (hyperlipidaemia, anaemia and fatty liver degeneration) may rarely occur with intracranial haemorrhage. Four patients suffering from both diseases are reported. Although it remains unclear whether there is a causal relationship between the two, it seems that hyperlipidaemia may be a major cause of intracranial bleeding. One reason for the small number of reported cases may be that hyperlipidaemic serum levels rapidly decrease after alcohol withdrawal.
